BELLINGHAM - St. Sophia Greek Orthodox Church opened its annual Bellingham Greek Festival under rainy skies Thursday, Sept. 5, but hopes to liven things up this weekend.
The festival will run from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday at the church at 510 E. Sunset Drive. Parking and admission are free.
Festivalgoers can enjoy live music and dancing, but the big draw remains such traditional Greek dishes as baklava, spanakopita and tiropita. Food prices vary; buy tokens for food as you enter the festival. There also will be beer and wine for sale.
Tours of the church are offered throughout each day.
The event has covered seating and is held rain or shine.
