JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Hundreds get a taste of great Greek food and heritage this weekend.

Folks were able to sample a number of dishes and even desserts at this year's GreekFest.

Dancing and other parts of the Greek culture were on display.

Holy Trinity- Saint John the Theologian Greek Orthodox Church tries to hold the event each year.

Chuck Odom, Co-Chairman of GreekFest said, "We have an identity, an ethnic identity if you will, with Greece.  Anyone can join our church.  I'm not Greek but I'm Greek Orthodox, so we want to share that with our friends and neighbors."

The two day event wrapped up Sunday evening.
