#blogjune – Day 11 – 2011 Lebanese Food Festival

Posted by Jenelle in #blogjune, Life in New York / 4 Comments

Last weekend, Our Lady of Lebanon Cathedral in Brooklyn Heights held the Lebanese Food Festival again. Remember last year? Well this year was sooo much better because the humidity wasn’t 1000%! It was still warm but not too uncomfortable so we were able to walk the 30 minutes to Remsen Street.

This year we went on Sunday which was a bad idea because they had run out of vine leaves. We still had some other delicious food which is a good treat when someone else is making home style Lebanese food for you to save cooking it yourself!

Brooklyn Borough Hall looking nice and patriotic –

The Our Lady of Lebanon Cathedral. It is gorgeous and they have this food festival every year to raise funds for the church restoration.
