HONEY PUFFS ON THE RUN AT PANIYIRI

- RACHAEL ROSEL

DRIVE-through honeypuffs and digital demonstrat­ions are all apart of the new Paniyiri Greek Festival format that promises to be just as lively as previous years.

Due to COVID restrictio­ns, the 45th annual festival has moved from its longstandi­ng Musgrave Park location to the Greek Club precinct and online.

“We stage this incredible event by the grace of our community and our sponsors, and have had to adopt to a format that protects us against any future lockdowns, yet still allows us to share our incredible culture, flavours, music, dance and history with greater Brisbane,” organising committee chair Chris Kazonis said.

Crowd favourites such as the Hellenic Dancers and fashion parades will still be running at the festival with most of events being lifestream­ed for those at home.

But it’s the world-famous honey puffs that have Karlia Xanthopoul­os, 9, and Timmy Xanthopoul­os, 9, so excited to head down on the weekend of May 22 and May 23.

Entry to the Greek Club will be free alongside some ticketed experience­s. Tickets for those events are on sale now.
