St. Elias Maronite Church is celebrating its 15th annual Lebanese Food and Cultural Festival.

"Come see it. We've been here a long time. We've been a part of the community. Taste some of the food. I recommend you get a "Beirut Classic" and a chicken plate. If you're coming with a group, there's enough for food for you all to try and you'll get some of everything," says festival co-chair Paul Bolus.

The festival begins Friday goes through Saturday 10am-9pm each day. Admission{} is free and open to the public.

25% of all proceeds go to charity
