Greek Festival may see record numbers this year

Outside of the occasional accident, traffic flows smoothly most days on Birmingham’s Southside. But on this Thursday, there’s a little bit of a slowdown on 19th Street South near the Holy Trinity-Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Cathedral.

The drivers of the cars don’t appear to mind, because most are coming to get their “fix” of Greek delicacies – foods such as souvlakia, pisticho and baklava.

It’s the 43rd annual Greek Festival, which continues to grow in popularity each year. The festival runs through Saturday evening.

Producer Brittany Faush-Johnson gives us an inside look at the annual community favorite.
