As I enter my 24th year hosting the morning show at 92.7 WOBM, it's my pleasure to have been involved with numerous organizations and events for many years now and one of them is St. Barbara's Greek Orthodox Church of Toms River and their annual Greek Festival.

Once again this year the WOBM Hometown Crew and I will be on-hand for the festivities. This Saturday we'll be broadcasting live from Noon to 2 p.m. so join us for fun, food, history and lots of dancing.


"The Festival is almost here so we wanted to bring to everyone's attention some updates for this year. We have installed a festival bus loop for the safety of our visitors with a view to no longer have on-site parking for visitors, which has become very common for most church festivals now.  This also allows us to open up the festival as a fully pedestrianized event with a plan of getting more attendance and easing the crowd flow during the weekend whilst keeping everyone safe by eliminating vehicles driving through the festival. We have increased the number of shuttle buses from Ocean County College so everyone must park at the college and take the 4 minute bus ride to the church. There will be no handicap parking at church either but we will have handicap parking at the college closer to where the buses will pick up and will also have extra handicap shuttle buses."
