GREEKS ON THE STREETS – Greenwood Car Show, 2014

SHARE

For the second year in a row, a significant Greek presence was seen at the Greenwood Car Show in Seattle, Washington, a mile and a half of classic and unusual vehicles and one of the best people-watching events in the state.  Sponsored by the Juan de Fuca chapter of AHEPA, 15 vehicles, owned by Greeks and philhellenes, parked in front of Pete’s Eggnest where Pete and Voula Sideris graciously served breakfast and provided shade and water for the participants.

Unfortunately, all participants were not available for photos and the windy conditions in the morning hours interfered with audio portions of the video recordings.  Apologies to those who were not included here.   Until 2015 when there will be an even bigger and better presence of Greeks on the Streets.
