HALIFAX – Sizzling Mediterranean food and free admission. Lebanese Festival organizers have those two aces up their sleeves when competing with Paul McCartney for an audience this weekend.

It’s the ninth year of the event, which attracts many volunteers from Halifax’s Lebanese community.

“We’ve all been here since the beginning of the festival,” said Lorendo, pictured above between Caroline, on left, and Ramza. The three were tending to a grill full of chich taouk and kafta Friday afternoon, just before the onslaught of the after-work crowd.

Kid activities, live music, folk dancing and a raffle are other reasons to attend the festival, which runs until Sunday night at the Olympic Centre at 2304 Hunter Street.
