I finally got around to checking out St Basil’s Greek Festival this year! It’s a small Greek Orthodox church in Lansingburgh (909 River St, Troy, NY 12180), and boy was it ever packed with people!
I liked the dancing – they had a tent set up outside with dancers, and some hot and cold food stations.
This guy caught my eye. Hello roasting lambykin! We didn’t get any though. They also had an indoor section that had other meals and pastries for sale. I really wanted to try some, but they were a little on the expensive side for me. Honey pastries are never really cheap. It was $2 for a small triangle of baklava, and $2.50 for this pastry cream phyllo thing that also looked really good, but was about the size of a mini hot dog.
I guess that’s festival prices? I don’t know – I don’t think the foods were outrageously priced, but just a little higher than I’d have hoped for since it was held by a church.
