Greek Day is today on West Broadway and the weather couldn’t be better. It’s one heck of a party and it’s been taking place in Kits, the core of the Vancouver Greek community, since 1974.

Greek Day festivities are free, lively, heartfelt, joyful and crowded. The food, which deserves its own sentence, is delicious.

Deliciousness such as souvlaki (meat skewers), spanikopita (spinach and cheese pastry), keftethes (meatballs), tzatziki (yogurt, cucumber and garlic sauce), honeyed loukoumades (doughnuts) are not free, but they’re worth it.

As always, you can expect cultural displays, live music, group dancing, shouts of “Opa!”, and a thoroughly entertaining and educational Family Zone.

Greek Day is today, Sunday, June 25th from 11am to 9pm. The party attracts over 100,000 participants and closes traffic on West Broadway from MacDonald to Blenheim.
