EGG HARBOR TWP. - All the sights and sounds of Greece were celebrated this week in Egg Harbor Township.

Thousands gathered throughout the course of the week at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church for their 30th annual festival.

The four–day event featured Greek cuisine, music, live entertainment and tours of the church to showcase the culture.

The festival also featured amusement rides and games for kids, plus two fireworks shows.

The event takes place the first week of June in observance of the church's feast day.

"It's a great event for the local community and for the church to get together and show people what being a Greek is all about; at least for a weekend or two," said church member of volunteer Fotios Tjoumakaris.

All proceeds from the event will go to Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church for their community outreach programs.
