Largest Greek Festival in Capital Region Now Underway

The largest Greek festival in the Capital Region is underway.

St. Sophia Church, in Albany, is hosting thousands of visitors this weekend, and showcasing traditional Greek music, dance, and food.

Church Marketing Director Maria Neal tells WGY church members have been spending the past week baking some 20,000 pieces of pastry.

"The majority of our pastries sold in the bakery are baked by our ladies and their family recipes that have been handed down, that we have been using for the last, almost 50 years, that the festival has been running."

This year, the popular festival has added an extra tent for food and activities.

It runs today from noon to 10 PM, and tomorrow from noon to 7 PM.
