ORLANDO, Fla. – It's all Greek in Central Florida this weekend. 

From the live music, authentic food, performances from three different dance troupes, the feel of Greece is alive in Central Florida.

The 37th annual Greek Fest at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in Maitland is in full swing November 7, 8 and 9. 

There is a wide assortment of food, desserts and drinks.

Some favorites include pastitsio (Greek lasagna), Saganaki (flaming cheese), gyros, baklava and more.

Wine, beer and frozen drinks for age-appropriate guests will be served.

There is also a dance floor where children can learn Greek dances in between professional performances.

Admission tickets are only $3.

Holy Trinity is partnering with The Ephraim Project this year - an organization that provides weekly hot dinners to homeless families in downtown Orlando.

If you bring a can of food for the organization, $1 will be taken off the admission.
