Community members enjoyed everything from watching dancers with traditional costumes to shopping for imported jewelry, gifts, and of course, authentic Greek cuisine. Organizers say they are grateful for community support which brought record turnout. “We can’t do this without the community of Albuquerque and the balloonists and those who come from out of town, this festival can’t be successful without the support of our community,” said Diane Kapuranis from the Grecian Festival.

Organizers say they’re already planning next year’s event.
