I went to the Paniyiri Greek Festival 2011 on the weekend with some friends.
It was in 1976 in Brisbane that a group of passionate Greeks decided to stage a festival to celebrate their rich and warm culture. They wanted to share their dance, their food, their song, their colour, their history, their Church, their traditions and their passion with all of Brisbane. This quest now continues every year, with thousands of Queenslanders paying homage to the Paniyiri Festival at Musgrave Park and The Greek Club in South Brisbane every May.
We went along at around 5pm on Sunday afternoon which is the last day of the festival, it was like a big party with greek music, dancing, food, rides and a showcase of Greek culture. I was a lot of fun.
Overall it was a great night. Hope you like the photos, let me know.
