We have also decided to offer four of our favorite sandwiches, Beef Shawarma, Chicken Shawarma, Kafta, and Falafel. We will have some of our favorite sides: Hummus, Grape Leaves, Spinach Pies and Fattoush Salad, with Kibbee Balls being added as a new item, as well as Baklawa and Cold Beverages. The Festival will also feature Dabke Dance and Ethnic Music with scattered seating arrangements, and Rides for the Kids!
