Don't wear a damn toga because this is no frat party. The Albuquerque Grecian Festival brings the non-stereotypical beauty and traditions of Greek culture to the rest of us non-Greeks. The St. George Greek Orthodox Church hosts this year's event once again and even if religion is not your thing, take a tour while at the fest. The church is a work of art. The festival takes place from Friday, Oct. 5 and Saturday, Oct. 6 from 11am to 10pm through Sunday, Oct. 7 from 11am to 5pm. Over the three days, take in the smell of roasting lamb, the sounds of bouzóuki, the sights of colorful dancers while experiencing demos, lessons, jewelry, fine art and more. Ticket costs are a nominal $5 for general admission, $2 for seniors and free admission for active duty military, police, fire, EMT and children under 11. A free park and ride is available at the corner of Lomas and University. (Mayo Lua de Frenchie)
