“I think it’s the best day of the year,” he told WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Carl Stevens.

Markos and a team of volunteers worked through the night preparing the meals, which included 192 turkeys.

Markos started the event back in 1993.

He said it’s simply about giving back to his community.

“It’s worth it because if you come and see the people that come through here and the faces… everybody’s so happy to be in one place, people became one big family,” he said.
