Turn your Greek day out at Paniyiri into a Big Fat Greek Weekend
Can you smell the sweet scent of honey puffs yet? Is your mouth watering at the thought of oozing haloumi? Are your ears ringing to the tune of a distant Zorba line coming at you? Well they should be, because Paniyiri Greek Festival is just around the corner … and we’ve launched a huge competition to celebrate!
Because we’re feeling generous (and you still haven’t found all the prizes!) we’re giving you until 12:00 pm today to join in a scavenger hunt on The Weekend Edition Brisbane, hunting for randomly placed yiros, olives and baklava that will reveal an instant prize (a double pass to Paniyiri Greek Festival.).
If your desire to be a true Greek god goes further than a mere entry pass to Paniyiri Greek Festival. (Pfft! Leave that to the mortals!), we’re here to give you your own version of Mount Olympus in Brisbane.
Enter our Big Fat Greek Weekend competition to be in the running to win a weekend worthy of the Greek god you truly are. Start with a two-night stay at Rydges Hotel South Bank in a deluxe twin room for you and three friends, complete with a private balcony overlooking the Brisbane River from Friday May 19 until Sunday May 21. A special Greek hamper, including a $100 The Greek Club dining voucher, will be waiting for you to get you in the mood for your heavenly Hellenic weekend. You’ll also enjoy buffet breakfast each morning and don’t even worry about your car – the valet parking heroes will take care of that.
Because you can’t wait for Paniyiri Greek Festival, we’re starting the festivities a night early with a colossal feast for you and five friends at Zeus Street Greek South Bank on Friday May 19.
Of course this weekend is all about enjoying Paniyiri, so on Saturday May 20 you’ll make your way there with complimentary entry passes for you and five friends. When you need a break from attempting to win the olive-eating competition (once again), you and your crew will have front-row seats to get traditional Hellenic cooking tips from Sweet Greek author Kathy Tsaples at 1:30 pm in The Greek Club ballroom. Don’t fill up on too many honey puffs throughout the day – we’ve organised a Greek feast for six in the VIP marquee on Saturday night, complete with drinks, from 6:00 pm.
Alas, your weekend is not finished yet! Prepare for another full day of grape stomping and olive eating – you’ve got six tickets for day two of Paniyiri as well on Sunday May 21. Be sure to checkout the entertainment on the main stage, grab a bite at the new authentic village-style The Plateia, and join in on the traditional sousta dance. Check out the Paniyiri website to start planning.
Your entire Big Fat Greek Weekend is valued at $1744. Are you worthy? Enter below for your chance to win.
