Traditional Greek food, culture featured at FdL church

FOND DU LAC – People were going Greek for an annual festival in Fond du Lac Sunday.

Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church hosted Greekfest.

The event took place inside the expo building on the Fond du Lac County fairgrounds.

People lined up to enjoy traditional Greek dishes like gyros, shish-kabobs and baklava.

There was also a raffle with a first prize of $1,000.

Organizers say it’s a way to bring people together and celebrate Greek heritage.

“I think it shows our culture and our community, and we’ve been here for so many years. Many people know all of the families here and it’s generation after generation,” said Peggy Kalles, organizer.

The festival raises money for the host church.
