Greek Festival 2006

The Greek Festival was a great event, and fun for the whole family.  The event was covered by Brian, Travis, Renee, Stephani, and Jeff and held in Calgary.  Everyone had their favourite thing about the festival.  Some of the providers were invited to learn how to do traditional Greek dancing and spent some time on the dance floor, while others ate a lot of baklava.  There were lots of fun things for kids to do, including balloon animals and face-painting.  The balloon artist created ‘Bubbles the IAS EMS fish’ and he now sits proudly in the office covered in bandages and an oxygen mask.

 There were only a few minor injuries to deal with, so IAS staff kept busy playing with children, and providing sun screen for those playing outside.  The big excitement happened when a motor vehicle collision occurred up the street and Travis and Renee responded to it.  They were first on the scene with their equipment, as it sounded like a serious accident.  Calgary Fire and EMS responded quickly and everything turned out fine, with handshakes all around. 

 We were all struck by how friendly, outgoing, and welcoming the organizers were.  It was a fantastic introduction for some of us to the Hellenic culture and tradition.  If anyone is looking for something to do with their family next summer, we recommend dropping by the Greek festival.  The people are wonderful and the food is out of this world!  What a lot of fun!
