SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- About 10,000 people are expected at St. Sophia's Church in Syracuse this weekend for the 39th annual Greek Cultural Festival. The four-day festival begins tonight with plenty of music, dancing, and of course food and pastries.
The event started as a church picnic in 1973, but now has become one of the more popular Greek festivals in the area.
"The mission is not only to raise money for the church to help us operate, but also to share our culture, and internally for the St. Sophia's community to reinforce the traditions. So, to keep it going and everything, so it's a wonderful experience for everyone," said Liz Steinberg, St. Sophia's Festival.
The festival starts tonight and tomorrow night at 5 p.m., and at noon on Saturday and Sunday.
