From Athens Grease Festival Website:
ATHENS GREASE FESTIVAL
"A Celebration of All Things Fried"
Fried foods are Southerners' achilles heel. Our kitchens are like art studios where recipes are perfected and new delights are born. We especially love to batter and fry standard fare like okra and fish, but we don't mind expanding the technique to Twinkies and Snicker bars. In Athens, Alabama, we have embraced our love of fried foods and the Greek origination of our name by hosting the Athens Grease Festival in downtown Athens on September.
