Greek light­ning

Cockburn Gazette - - FRONT PAGE - Ju­lian Wright

THE Perth Glendi Greek Fes­ti­val has a new home this year at El­iz­a­beth Quay on April 21 and 22.

The pre­vi­ous two fes­ti­vals were held at Rus­sell Square near the Greek Ortho­dox Church, with the last one held in 2016.

The two-day cel­e­bra­tion of Hel­lenic cul­ture in­cludes Greek food, lo­cal and in­ter­state Greek singers, mu­si­cians and dance groups, belly dancers, plate smash­ing, mar­ket stalls and chil­dren's car­ni­val rides.

Sis­ters Theodora Palas­sis and Toula An­tonas from The Greek Plate will be back for the third time with a range of Greek sweets and savouries.

Celebrity fourth gen­er­a­tion Greek pas­try chef Ge­orge Di­akomichalis, who heads a multi-award win­ning busi­ness in Ade­laide, will re­turn to host cook­ing demon­stra­tions of desserts. There will be an at­tempt to smash the Perth record for the largest Zorba dance, with hopes more peo­ple will join in than the last at­tempt in 2016, which drew just under 2000 par­tic­i­pants.

The fes­ti­val will be on Satur­day, April 21, from 3pm-10pm and Sun­day, April 22, from 11am- 8pm. En­try is $2, with chil­dren under 12 free. Go to www.perth­
