Greek Food Festival a popular event for central Arkansas

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - "Come get your hot and juicy here," a chef yells from the gyro stand.

From live music to food and desserts, those attending the 30th Greek Food Festival have so many options to choose from.

"You can't have a Greek food festival and you can't come to a Greek food festival without having a gyro, and these are some of the best gyros around," said Larry Betz.

What keeps everyone coming back each year? "The food and the desserts," explained Pat Perkins. Pat and Ray Perkins have attended 20 out of the 30 years the festival has been held. "First time we came was like on a Sunday afternoon, and they were all gone."

The couple quickly realized they'd have to come sooner if they wanted to get first dibs at all the food the festival has to offer.

"The first day on Friday I always take off from work and we come out," Perkins continued.

Although she is not able to choose a favorite food, she does know this is a family tradition that will live on forever.
