Greek Food Festival is Right Around the Corner

Greek Food Festival

Plan Ahead For May

This May, the International Greek Food Festival enters its 33rd year of providing exceptional food and entertainment to friends from near and far. The Festival is the largest ethnic festival in Arkansas and has a long-standing tradition of being a local favorite. Mark your calendars for Friday, May 18 to Sunday, May 20, because this is a festival that you will not want to miss.

The 2018 International Greek Food Festival features food and fun for the whole family. The cuisine on offer comes from the many cultures of the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church, including Greek, Armenian, Romanian, and Russian. Not only will you get to experience the food of another culture, but also how food brings us together to the table. Along with the food, you can enjoy the entertainment – such as live music and dancing – and shop from the Old World Market, browsing the market’s many unique items from around the world.

There is a $3 entrance fee or, alternatively, you can donate three canned food items. In the course of the Festival’s history, it has donated almost $1.5 million to local charities, supporting the community and adding some philanthropic fun to this already exciting event.

We here at Russell Honda hope to see you at one of our favorite community events this May.

 

Fun Family Yard Games

fun family yard games

Family gatherings are a natural part of the summer season. While some families are content relaxing with some cool drinks, others need to get in on some action-packed games. Check out some of these fun family yard games recommended by us here at Russell Honda!

Lawn Twister

Every family knows the game Twister, but did you know that you don’t need the plastic mat to play it? Use some circular stencils and spray paint to create your own twister board right on the front lawn. It’s a simple, fun family yard game that everyone will enjoy!

Giant Lawn Pong

There’s regular beer pong, and then there’s taking things to the next level. Giant lawn pong gets rid of those little red cups and replaces them with massive trash cans. Arrange them in a similar fashion and use volleyballs instead of ping pong balls. If children are joining in, simply leave out the alcohol aspect of the game.

Water Balloon Dodge Ball

Imagine playing dodgeball without the lingering sting of getting hit with a rubber ball. Switching out the dodgeball with water balloons and get ready to dodge. Make sure to set some ground rules, like not aiming for people’s faces, to prevent any accidents or injuries.
