The Original Greek Festival kicks off tonight in Houston's Montrose neighborhood.

Event organizers estimate over the next 4 days more than 40,000 people will make it out to the festival. This year, they promise expanded festival grounds and a third entrance gate to help reduce lines.

If you're going, be warned parking is limited near and around the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral. There are two free parking lots with shuttles to the festival at Lamar High School and HCC Central Campus.

Admission for adults is $5. Children under 12 are free. There's free admission for everyone during lunch Friday from 11am to 3pm.
