Jersey Shore Greek Festival

Mike and I are always looking for fun things to do outside during the summer months. So, when we were driving and saw a sign for the Jersey Shore Greek Festival, we knew we just had to go. We watched the Greek Orthodox Church be built from scratch over the past couple of years and every time we drove by, it looked more and more beautiful.  The festival was so much fun. There was food...lots of food!  With all the stations set up we could not decide what we were going to dig into. After walking around, checking everything out, we finally decided on Gyros & Greek fries! As we scarfed them down, we watched the church’s youth group do a couple of different sets of Greek dances. The whole atmosphere brought back memories of my Yia Yia & Popou and the Greek festivals I used to attend as a child. We can't wait to go back next year!

If you’re looking for fun & inexpensive things to do this summer, I would suggest taking a look around your town or just get on Google and start searching. As I am driving, I am always seeing different signs for fireworks, music festivals, carnivals, etc. Take advantage of these events during the summer! They will make for great memories and full bellies!
