Twitter Facebook Email Print St Demetrios Church with the Fair in the foreground Last night I checked out the St. Demetrios Greek Fair and took a bunch of snaps. Here are scenes from the fair – remember, it is on tonight, and through the weekend! The ferris wheel can be seen from the subway Ride inside these bears! Elephant says hello The kids really seem to love this ride Love the retro look of this sign There are also carnival games Here are some of the prizes you can win Even rasta bananas There’s plenty of food at the fair, like these Greek pastries The gyro is fab – made with lamb, beef, and pork and costs $6 There’s also souvlaki, apparently provided by Souvlaki King Hot dogs and fries are also available The loukoumades are delicious – they fry a lot at once There are a number of women helping to make them They handle them and sell them in small ($4) or large ($8) containers Here’s an up close shot of the loukoumades. They are even tasty when they cool down. We had a great time!
