Adelaide Glendi a roaring success

The Greek Glendi Festival in Adelaide was held for the first time in October, after three decades of being held in March to commemorate Greece’s Independence Day.
The move to hold the event on the weekend of October 3-4 was made to distinguish the festival from the “mad month of March”, which sees a multitude of festivals and events.
Despite the date change, the Glendi, held at the Wayville Showground still managed to attract more than 10,000 people.
“The highlight was John Katevas’s (from Greece) performance, and George Kapiniaris was also good,” said festival director, John Chefalachis. “We were also entertained by local dance groups performances, including two dance groups from Melbourne; Pontiaki Estia and Manassis.”
Children enjoyed table wrestling, indoor soccer, and author Bea Julian’s reading of her new picture story book, The Fountain Cat, which was inspired by her time spent on the beautiful island of Rhodes.
Greek cuisine (Kouzina) was the theme for the Glendi School’s Program, which saw children use art and clay to create lifelike Greek dishes.
The real cooking was left to the experts, including a cooking demonstration by chefs from the popular Greek restaurant, Greek on Halifax.
