OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP) — If you're heading to Ocean City this weekend, consider getting your Greek on.

The Ocean City Greek Festival begins Friday and runs through Sunday at the Roland E. Powell Convention Center.

The city's tourism bureau website says the event run by the St. George Greek Orthodox Church is the area's largest Greek festival.

The schedule includes music, dancing, a marketplace and, of course, food, available for dining in or carryout.

Organizer Alexandra Hall tells The Daily Times of Salisbury that last year's festival drew nearly 6,000 people.

She says it's a critical fundraiser for the church and its philanthropic ministries.
