The smell of gyros and baklava will fill the air in Montrose today as the Original Greek Festival returns to Houston.

More than 40,000 people are expected enjoy Greek dancing, shopping and all that delicious food during the four day festival.

In fact, it's the food the festival organizers really pride themselves in, claiming it's the best festival food you'll find anywhere in the city.

The fun begins this evening and runs through Sunday. The festival is at the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral on Yoakum in southwest Houston. Admission is $5 for adults and children under 12 get in free.
