Living it up at Lebanese fest

This year’s Lebanese Festival packs in more events than lamb in a shawarma.

The festival, now in its ninth year, features everything from traditional Lebanese dance competitions to a water-drinking tournament — in addition, of course, to the food.

Festival spokeswoman Christina Israel said this year’s event also includes a lottery in which festival goers can win trips to Lebanon or New York City.

Israel added Sunday’s World Cup final game between the Netherlands and Spain will be broadcast on several big screen televisions rented for the occasion.
