Celebrating with Food and Dance
For the past 32 years Carbon county has been enlightened with the Greek Festival Days. Held last weekend, spotlighting the Greek culture, the event drew another record crowd with traditional Greek foods and dancing. People have come to enjoy pastries such as karathopeta, finika, kourabiethes and koulourakia. Several dancing troups from Salt Lake joined the festival and provided traditional Greek dancing throughout Friday and Saturday. By spotlighting the Greek culture, through the festival they were able to raise money to help support needy families, youth projects, charities, the development of the community and other philanthropic endeavors. The funds also support the building which remains on the National Historic Register.
