Henley Beach Greek Festival
Celebrating the Blessing of The Waters at Henley Beach.
Enjoy traditional greek food and home made delicacies including yiros, souvlaki and more. There will also be live music and Greek dancing.
The Blessing of the Waters ceremony is an interesting event that everyone enjoys and one which is unique and sacred. The most exciting part is when the holy cross is thrown into the water. As the cross is thrown in by a priest, men plunge into the water to catch it and try to outrace each other. Whoever manages to be the first to reach the cross and bring it out of the water is believed to be blessed with good luck.
