Upper Darby becomes Little Greece on Greek Independence Day [video]

Upper Darby, PA – The Greek Independence Day parade march along the Ben Franklin Parkway led to St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox church in Upper Darby. Described as Little Greece, by MC Harry Karapalides, St. Demetrios looked more like a train station from the outside as car and bus loads of Hellenes dressed in folk attire flooded in. Led by Mayor of Upper Darby Twp, Thomas N. Micozzie, the Greek-American community poured in to continue with the days celebrations this past Sunday. Greek organizations, societies and churches performed dances, recited poems and performed theatrical dances all in recognition of liberation for Greece.
