Paniyiri Greek Festival + Outfit of the day

Saturday, 18 May 2013

Opa!! That was the word of the day amongst the festivities of the Paniyri Greek Festival in Brisbane – A true kaleidoscope of culture is what the Paniyiri Greek Festival is all about. Bringing the heart of Greece to the doorstep of Brisbane; Which it does perfectly!

Traditional Greek music played on the Bouzouki, Tarabuka, Lira and Laouto filled the air of Musgrave Park where some of the famous Greek dances such as the Zorba, Sirto, Kalamatiano and Sousta took center stage. Before I knew it the atmosphere had soaked into my skin and I was saying Opa just because I could, enjoying the beautiful clear skies, the sun on my skin it was time for the main attraction; Food! 

30 food stalls filled Musgrave Park, showcasing the tastes and the secrets of food from all the corners of Greece. Wafts of mouth-watering delights made your senses tingle and not to mention your stomachs rumble in anticipation. From the scrumptious savory pleasures such as Yiros, Souvlaki, Octopus, Haloumi and Mousaka  to of course the sweet treats – Baklava, Honey Puffs, Kataifi, Shortbread, Nut Rolls and Galaktoboureko.

Even though the steps of the Acropolis are 15,000 kilometers away from the streets of Brisbane – The sights, sounds, people, food and the culture in all its glory was on full display to show the people of Brisbane what the Greek culture is all about.  I of course am truly impressed and I am now prepared to take it on in the land itself when I make my way to Greece next month. 

After indulging in this amazing food! (I am now obsessed with Greek food) I decided to take a walk along Southbank to take in the sights and the sunshine. Stopping to take in the sheer size of the Channel 7 Ferris Wheel and the gorgeous temple that are dotted along the riverbank of Brisbane. 

What I wore:
Top: Sportsgirl / Skirt: Bardot Stretch PU Skirt / Bag: Mimco Turnlock Zip Top  / Necklace: Diva / Ring: Saint Laurent / Shoes: Urge
