It's a word that's used as an expression of happiness -- and you'll be hearing plenty of "Opa!" this weekend at the Greek Orthodox Cathedral of the Annunciation in Atlanta.
The 40th Annual Atlanta Greek Festival opened Thursday, Sept. 24th and continues through Sunday, Sept. 27th. This year -- for such a special anniversary -- the Festival is partnered with Children's Healthcare of Atlanta as sponsor, and organizers say it's going to be as tasty as ever. The Festival features music, traditional dancing, cooking demonstrations, and food favorites like Gyros and Greek Pizza. Admission is just five bucks, and kids 12 and under are free. There's free parking at the Greek Orthodox Cathedral of the Annunciation and shuttles at Century Center Office Park on Clairmont Road.

Thursday, 9/24 - 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Friday, 9/25 - 5 p.m. to 11 p.m.
Saturday, 9/26 - 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
