It was just this year that I learned the proper pronunciation for "gyro." You can learn it as well, and eat one or two at this year's Greek Festival. Of course, there is plenty of other traditional Greek fare to munch on — Souvlaki, anyone? After you eat, get even more into the Greek spirit by indulging in traditional Greek dancing and music. If you're looking for souvenirs to take home, take a stroll through the Agora and peruse clothing, jewelry, icons, and specialty foods. There are also regular church tours, and a Kiddie Village for children to enjoy.
The Greek Festival will take place Thursday, May 28, through Sunday, May 31, at the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church, 962 East Ave. Free admission. 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. rochestergreekfestival.org.
