St. Constantine & Helen's Greek Orthodox Church in downtown Mansfield held a Greek Festival in honor of Greek culture and tradition. Festivities included traditional Greek dancing, live bands playing authentic music, and hand-made foods.

"People will definitely see food that's out of this world," said Father Michael Ellis. "We take a lot of pride in that we don't have stuff shipped in that's not ours. We make everything, from the pastries to the foods."

Ellis also spoke about some of the other aspects such as the live music and the traditional dancing.

"You're going to see people dancing, including our trained dancers. You're going to experience a lot of music - wonderful music, with a live band called the Grecian Keys. And to be here and not experience all that fun, I think, is going to be very difficult."

Vendors served Greek foods such as loukoumades and other treats.
