Panegryi Greek Festival Wraps Up

Posted: Updated:
If you didn't get a chance to try a gyro, or treat yourself to some baklava, you'll have to wait until next year.

Despite Sunday's stormy weather, crowds lined up to get a taste of some authentic Greek food at the last day of the 26th Annual Panegryi Greek Festival. Organizers say this year's festival is a successful one, estimating about 25,000-30,000 people attended.

"It's been similar to the year's in the past," said Mike Geanous, co-chair of the festival. "We've had good crowds the first few nights and this is Sunday and we're hoping for the same thing."

Proceeds from the festival will benefit the Erie Greek Orthodox Church.
