The festival has food, music and activities for all ages.
Traditionally, there are games for the children, crafts, raffles, the famous Cow Chip Bingo and more.
As they do every year, they will be selling Polish and American food.
They will have everything from golombki, pierogi, kapusta soup and kielbasa sandwiches to chowder and clam cakes, hot dogs, torpedoes, French fries, doughboys, sausage and peppers and pastry. They will also be selling cacoila, a Portuguese sandwich dish, Pankiewicz-DiCarlo said.
