A chariot ride for the kids is the newest attraction at the 11th annual Greek Festival at St. Thomas the Apostle Orthodox Church, 4200 South Holiday Avenue in southwest Springfield this weekend.  The three-day event is a traditional family-oriented celebration of everything Greek.  Jeannie Duffey, a parishioner at the church, visited KSMU again this year to talk up the Festival and its features this year.
