This year’s Lonsdale Greek Festival in Melbourne broke many records… thousands of loukoumades and souvlaki sold at more than 100 food stalls…more than 500 dancers and musicians sharing Cretan, Pontian, Peloponesian and other regional Greek songs and dances on numerous stages, over 150,000 people in attendance throughout the weekend and…
The longest Zorba dance in the world, according to organizers!For what it’s worth, we did our research and there hasn’t ever been such a long line of people dancing to the tune of Mikis Theodorakis’ world-famous Greek song that first appeared in the 1960s film by the same name.
And whether or not it’s recognized by the folks at the Guinness Book of World Records (we think it should!)… It’s still a spectacle to watch as thousands participate.
