Celebrating Greek culture

John Schneider and his sister Katerina, both of DeKalb, make loukoumades during Greek Fest in Hopkins Park, last weekend. Loukoumades are a Greek dessert of fried dough balls soaked in honey and rolled in powdered sugar and cinnamon. Greek Fest, hosted by St. George Greek Orthodox Church in DeKalb, featured Greek food, including beer and wine, desserts, music, traditional Greek dance troupe performances and arts and crafts vendors. "It's been our church's tradition for more than 30 years," event chairman Bill Vassilogambros said. "It's a festival that brings people together to have a good time, eat Greek food and learn about Greek culture."
