A classic tradition: the Grecian Festival

August 17, 2014

PAWTUCKET – Ivy Duffy, 76, of Providence, got a taste of Greek culture while taking a sailing cruise through the Greek islands with her husband Charlie last year, and figured to add to her experiences with a visit to the Grecian Festival at Assumption of the Virgin Mary Greek Orthodox Church on Sunday.

Her interest was also heightened by her friendship with a dance teacher, Andrea Vastis, who helps run the Greek Pride of Rhode Island dance troupe starring at the Walcott Street church’s 87th annual festival.

“I enjoyed it, I really liked everything,” Duffy, a retired college professor, said of the three-day event.
