Nashvillians celebrated Greek culture at a popular annual event for a good cause.

Money raised at the event benefits the church, and members said it’s a good way to celebrate their heritage.

“It’s a great way for us to get out in the community and show we love being Greek, and showing we are Greek,” Katrina Kennedy said.

The three-day festival was set to continue Sunday from  8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
