With many summer events, especially fairs and carnivals, cancelled, postponed, or scaled down due to the coronavirus pandemic, several churches in the area have decided to get creative and adapt to the new climate.
Two churches are each hosting drive-thru events featuring different food items to enjoy for carryout.
One happens to be on Cleveland’s east side.

The 2020 Greek Festival Drive-Thru will happen Thursday Aug. 20 – Sunday, Aug. 23 at Sts. Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Cathedral, 3352 Mayfield Road in Cleveland Heights.
