This is the Greek Orthodox Church of Newport News. This is where the Newport News Greek Festival takes place! Keep in mind that it is this year, June 1-4th! The food is great! It's a must, if you haven't been. There is one that takes place in Norfolk during the summer, at the Greek Orthodox Church off Granby St for our Southside friends.

This church, built in 1881, still stands as an element to the downtown Newport News Skyline.

Thanx! I have visions of one day moving back. I'm not sure if I will ever move back but I will at least visit here and there.

That's my church, Sts Constantine and Helen, and yes the Greek festival this year is the first weekend in June. I believe it is the largest ethnic festival on the Peninsula with close to 20,000 in attendance over four days. I will be there all weekend volunteering and running around.

The Greek festival at the Annunciation church in Norfolk is on the weekend of May 19. The Greek church there is located on Granby Street near Wards corner.

Awesome! My family and I wait all year round for the Greek Fest. It's a summer tradition for us now.

Haven't been to the Greekfest in NN, but my fiance and I went to the one in Norfolk last year (it was our first time). It was awesome. The food was great, the music and traditional dancing was very cool. (as a musician, I appreciate that stuff :) and they had a Greek market that sold music, clothing, apperal, jewelry, and sundry Greek merchendise. We had a good time.

Here's Hampton Roads' most prestigious institution for higher education: The College of William and Mary. It is the second to the oldest college, behind Harvard, in the United States. The campus is very picturesque showcasing colonial Virginia architecture, the Sunken Garden and two hundred-plus year old oak trees.
