This weekend is jam-packed with plenty to do, and the Eye Street crew kicked it off by highlighting this Friday and Saturday's 41st Annual Greek Food Festival.
"There's something for everybody," simulcast host Scott Cox said Thursday on "First Look with Scott Cox."
Californian assistant lifestyles editor Stefani Dias cast this weekend as the one that kicks off the rest of the year.
Dias highlighted the Greek Food Festival.
"We share our Greek culture with the community," Ted Budy from the festival said. People go for the family and park-like atmosphere, said Budy, who will serve the lemon chicken dinners.
The festival is the main fundraiser and community outreach event of the year for St. George Greek Orthodox Church, 401 Truxtun Ave. It takes place from 4 to 11 p.m. Friday and noon to 11 p.m. Saturday.
Budy brought delicious pastries to the show, saying "a lot of love goes into them."
Cox said he enjoys the festival because it's a chance to meet people of a variety of cultures.
Dias noted other events this weekend include:
* First Friday, including the opening of Latination.
