Fascinating Festival Was Held in Little Rock

IMG 0308 (640x427)The 3rd Annual Turkish Food Festival was enjoyed by many. Despite the rain and cold weather in Little Rock area over the weekend participants found a warm and joyful environment when they walked into the Raindrop Turkish House Cultural Center to shelter themselves.

The Festival featured a large selection of Turkish food such as kebabs, gyro, baklava, stuffed grape leaves, rice with chickpeas, pastries, and desserts. As delicious as they sound, kids were attracted to other colorful items like cotton candy and popcorn in addition to the two huge moon walk balloons. The cold weather was not a deterrent for many kids who ran away from their parents screaming “Come back, it’s cold outside!”
