Some Greek fest food

Photos: Camarillo Greek Festival

Opa Dude is a mascot for the kids. He's part of a virtual scavenger hunt. Scanning the code below gives clues, and they learn about Greek culture. He is the essence of the festival.

Greek culture helped make surf culture. Dick Dale turned Greek guitar into surf guitar. "Miserlou" is a Greek song that dates back to the 1920s. More recently, it was used by the Black Eyed Peas.

Yesterday, we heard the song played by the Olympians, one of California's leading Greek bands.

Today is the last day of the festival. If you can get there, try the souvlaki. It's always good, but it's at a new level this year.
