Enjoy a SLO Weekend…San Luis Obispo Greek Festival

We love a good festival and are excited to attend the San Luis Obispo Greek Festival this weekend in Downtown SLO! I’m not going to lie, I’ve been obsessed with Greece since I did a report on the beautiful country in 6th grade. We love the food, I’m so into the culture and it’s people, and they always throw a great party. Some of my best friends growing up were Greek and their parties were so joyous and they really made you feel at home.

The location of the festival couldn’t be better, right in Mission Plaza. So, after church this Sunday all my husband and I have to do is walk out of the doors and down a few steps! I can’t wait to stuff myself silly with baklava & galaktobouriko and join in a dance or two. Come out and join us!

Morro Bay offers so many events throughout the year, such as last weekend’s Kite Festival. It seems as though people can’t stay away from The Rock and we don’t mean the wrestler! Although, I do have friends who would love to be all over that Rock. Both are big, strong, and full of flair. This 3 day event, Friday-Sunday, features hundreds of cars that come from all over to participate in the annual event. Car enthusiasts enjoy the great weather and amazing rides. Click HERE for a schedule of the event. Will you be flocking to The Rock for Cinco de Mayo?
