Panagia Virginia Spring Festival
With perfect weather conditions hundreds of Adelaideans made their way to Virginia on Sunday 16 September to participate in the annual Virgin Mary Festival held at the Kapiris farm as their private chapel located in the premises bears the name of the Birth of Virgin Mary.
The first part of the two-day event commenced on Sunday September 7 at the private chapel with Bishop Chrisostom together with the rest of the Greek Orthodox Community SA’s clergy conducting the Great Evening Vesper as well as the Blessing of the Five Loafs.
The Community’s President, Mr Bill Gonis as well as many members of the Executive and Supervisory Committee attended the event.
Meanwhile the Kapiris farm was transformed into an open-air Greek funfair with grills working full time, rides for the kids and an entertainment area. The Spring sunshine, the traditional dances from the Community’s Dance Academy students, the music by Nick and Polyxeni band and the culinary aromas of the Greek grilled delicacies added to the Hellenic atmosphere.
The event attracted people from all parts of the Adelaide Metropolitan area as well as regional towns such as Renmark, Berri, Walaroo and many more.
All proceeds from the Festival go towards the Community’s Afternoon Greek Schools.
