I am driving by St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church located at 129 N. Halifax Ave right on the Halifax River (Intracoastal) in Daytona Beach, and I see familiar signs inviting to the 34th annual Greek Festival. And then I stumble on the articles on the Internet
I have been on two of them before, and even though I am not from Greece, it is interesting and it is a lot of fun. Besides the tour of St. Demetrios Orthodox Church, there is entertainment and food at Riverfront Center at St Demetrios. Expect plenty of food and plenty of entertainment. Listen to live music, watch Greek dance ensemble, but then you can join the dancers on the floor and learn a move or two. If you are shy, Greek beer will make it a bit easy for you.
Just as you walk in (a couple of dollar as donation will get you in), you will see a whole line of Gyros Machines and roasting cones and the aromas will overpower you. You will find everything from Greek Salads, stuffed grape leaves, spinach pie, Gyro with Tatziki sauce, Baklava, fresh honey balls…
