Sirius Rising 2011 - Turtle Fire
What a great fire it was. Partway through the night they rebuilt it to add a gigantic vertical hollow log. The fire tending crew was awesome.
UPDATE: This is someone else's video of the main fire being lit on youtube.

The food is really just like Greek diner food and despite Greece being a land of seascapes, it includes no seafood. That made me sad. They even had all these historical picture of fish and fisherman.
The only thing I can think of is that the people who founded that church were mountain Greeks.
My favorite part is the loukoumi, which are also known as Turkish delights. I am obsessed with them. I decided to just learn to make them, although I bought a pack of rose flavored ones.
The really surprising parts were learning how the Greek orthodox felt about Catholics is how the Catholics feel about the Protestants. Also I learned there used to be five patriachs till the pope got power hungry. Well, at least that is their story.
On the way out the pig man christians were protesting the Greek festival with a similar furvour to the way they protest Thursday in the square. It's so weird now that they protest everything. I hope they protest the Italian festival and guidos beat the shit out of them.
This seems like a bad translation - "Our ancestor's once proved useful to humanity"
The ones in the white skirts were men.

Canal Fest Sunday For the Fireworks
Then we arrived at canal fest. I wish I had something good to say about canalfest.
The canal is so full of shit.
The zebra muscles love it, look how they cling to the shopping cart.
I missed the republican clams, lol.
I drank the lemonade and so did (e:mike) Afterwards I looked at the lemon in my drink, it was sick.
The ferris wheel looked cool at night.
Don't they look canaltastic.

The food was delicious. I had fried calamari, fried ravioli, tortelini in vodka creme sauce, peach and raspeberry italian ice, italian sausage, streak and dandelions, clams, and ice cream. I love whatever that lobster hot place is, even if it is not overhwelmingly italian. They have really good seafood.
They had some sort of Italian Dancers from our sister city in Italy. Sorry the pic is so blurry.
The fried calamari from Lombardos are the same lame, pre-fab frozen ones that you get a Casa Di Pizza. The ones down the street at Fillippos - were so much better. You could see them actually breading the calamari and frying it. Not to mention tha it was a combination of legs and rings which I prefer. (e:mike) only likes the rings.
I don't know what it is about Lorigos but people were willing to wait over a half an hour in live to get their food. The flyer said they were a wholesale place form Grant Street. Somehow, in my whole Buffalo Italian life I never got introduced to that. It can't be that far away from Guercios.
Yummy italian ice. It had the perfect consistency and flavor to me.
I wish I could have gotten more pictures but my hands got so greasy so fast.
How can they always have free ice cream everywhere? Did anyone try it at the taste or at the Italian Festival.

Allentown Art Festival And MIA
(e:holly) said taking pictures of people's art is stealing. I don't really agree but it made me feel paranoid about filming the stuff.
The freakin' scientologists have littered the streets with their trash.
