What do Paczki, Pierogis, Golabkis, Ciszka, Kluski, and Kielbasa have in common? They all are Polish foods that will be available at the Smaczne Jablka (tasty apple) festival on Sunday, October 1, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Polish Museum.
This year’s festival will have something for everyone — elephant train rides and Polish TV cartoons for the kids, a Norwegian Fjord horse and Polish sheep dogs will be present to admire, live music and a Polka band will play throughout the day, and the local international dancers will perform at 2 p.m. in the Liberty Street annex.
There will also be many area crafters selling their wares along with a very large sale of Polish pottery direct from Poland, a large silent auction with many new items and gift certificates will be held at the end of the day along with the drawing for prizes on our big ticket raffle, and Polish men and women who have started businesses will be represented in the Polish Power show on Liberty Street. Last but not least, organizers will have apples from Father Paul Breza’s orchard. They can be ordered as freshly juiced, bagged, caramel apples, or in a slice of pie with ice cream!
