Summer brings a host of different kinds of ethnic festivals and picnics.
They are fun to attend. It's great to get a look into how different cultures celebrate.
Having Polish roots, it was a natural for me to attend a lively Polish family festival in a Western Massachusetts town.
People flock to this event like crazy every single year. It's been held for as long as I can remember (and that's a long, long time. ha ha ).
It could be called Polish FOOD Festival because, well, hey, let's face it, that's what a lot of people go for.
The Polish food plate special looked like this:
It included kielbasa (spicy Polish sausage); golumpki (stuffed cabbage); kapusta (chopped up cabbage and sauerkraut); pierogi (dough turnovers of sorts with filling); and rye bread. It cost $8.50. (Note: the golumpki was hiding underneath the slice of bread.)
A makeshift dance floor was set up under a big white tent top. What fun to see everyone doing the Polka. Little kids moved right along with grandmas and grandpas, aunts, uncles, cousins, and the neighborhood cronies.
The day had perfect weather, everyone had a blast, and as for that Polish food? It was yummy.
