The 31st Greek Festival happens at Ala Moana Park’s McCoy Pavilion this weekend, promising major eating, drinking and dancing. Organizers expect 10,000 people per day for the two-day fest.

Co-chair Eres Eddy wants you to know they won’t skimp on the food. She’s introducing an Olympic plate showcasing everything on offer: Greek chicken, spanakopita, mousaka, dolmathes, feta cheese, pita bread, salad, rice, olives and baklava. Enough for two for $24. Ala carte, everything runs from $2 to $7.
