Annual Greektown Parade Preview

The 18th Annual Detroit Greek Independence Day Parade was initially scheduled for today, but Mother Nature had other ideas. Heavy rains in the forecast will push the event to 3 p.m. April 21 in historic Greektown. 

The family-friendly parade features traditional Greek dancers and musicians, handmade floats by local schools and businesses, a variety of church and non-profit groups, collegiate groups, the Bloomfield Hills Police Honor Guard, mascots from the Detroit Lions and Detroit Tigers, entertainment from the Detroit Pistons, characters from The Parade Company's Big Head Corp., and more.

George Xenos and Nina Bittas, owners of Estia Greek Street Food in Troy, dropped by the Fox2 News studios to highlight the event.
