Looking for something fun to do this weekend in Arizona?

When is the last time you experienced polka dancing? How about a pierogi-eating contest?

Okay, I admit. If it wasn’t for our sports guy, Dave Juday, I would have had no idea what a “pierogi” is.

If you don’t want to Google it, a pierogi is basically a doughy dumpling filled with sweet or savory filling. Inside a pierogi you might find potato, sauerkraut, ground meat, cheese, or fruits. The dumplings may be served with a topping, such as melted butter, sour cream, or a combination of those ingredients.

This Saturday and Sunday, April 14th and 15th will be The 15th Annual Polish Festival at Our Lady of Czestochowa Parish, near I-17 and Country Gables Drive. The exact address is 2828 W Country Gables Dr. Phoenix 85053.

Naturally, you should expect lots and lots of polish food specialties for sale, as well as Polish merchandise directly from vendors.

Admission and parking are free according to their website.

The event will be begin Saturday at 10am and end at 9pm. The fun starts back up 10am Sunday and goes till 5pm.

Entertainment, food, and fun is all you really need for a great time right?
