Nothing says summer like a trip to the amusement park.
So why not call off and join us as PolishYoungstown travels to the 78TH ANNUAL POLISH DAY AT KENNYWOOD PARK on TUESDAY, AUGUST 4th.
Sponsored by the Polish Cultural Council of Pittsburgh, the events will kick off at noon with the opening of the Polish Kitchen in the Main Pavilion at noon. The tasty homemade selections will include all of your favorites: pierogi, kielbasa, cucumbers in sour cream, stuffed cabbage and haluski. Bonus items include paczki donuts, homemade pickles and Fr. Miro’s famous potato pancakes made fresh to order! Delicious baked goods will be available to enjoy there or take home. Strolling musicians will help the food go down even easier.
The most reverend Bishop David Zubik will be honored as “Polonian of the Year” and will celebrate mass at 3 PM and will feature the Karuezela Chorus. Afterward excitement will build with the crowning of Miss Polonia 2009 and a first-time performance of the Krakowiaki Polish Folk Circle. Then put on your dancing shoes because the award-winning Polka Family Band will entertain from 6-9:30.

Polish Day 09
Planning is moving right along. Everyday there are news things happening…
We have now added a series of FREE workshops and demonstrations during the afternoon. These will include pisanki (Easter egg) decorating, wycinanki (paper cutting), accordion lessons, genealogy tracking, Polish travel tips and much more!!
We have opted to make this years event on August 30th, bigger and better than our first attempt last year--polka mass to start, two big-name polka bands, spacious venue with plenty of parking, children's programming, entertainment, folk art demonstrations and great vendors including homemade baked goods, kielbasa and folk crafts.
It will be great, but we still need your help.
Here's what you can do:
- Plan on attending
- Print out a copy of the Polish Day flyer and hang it at your neighborhood stores
- Give a copy to your friends.
But even more critical right now...all of this costs money, so we need sponsors!
We are very excited to say that Sobieski Vodka and Zywiec Beer have signed on as major sponsors!
But we would love to keep this a free admission event like last year in response to the economic times, but in order to do so we need to cover some of the costs. So local sponsors and support are critical in the next 5 days. Please consider donating and asking your friends and businesses you patronize to help too. All efforts would be greatly appreciated!

The Krakowiaki Folk Circle kids had a great time at Polish Camp at St Mary's College in Orchard Lake, Michigan last week. They danced, sang, learned Polish language and crafts as well as made mischief and enjoyed camp activities like bonfires and soccer and swimming. Pictures to come!
Have a great weekend!
