Colorful Slovakian spoon-dancers delight the crowd at Pierogifest 2006! I love ethnic dancing.

Okay, maybe it's not as entertaining as Hansi in drag, but I'm grateful that Dabs invited me down to Hammond to eat pierogis and experience the street fair.

And to be honest, the dancing was better than the pierogis!

State Line Marker

My first visit to Hammond was actually in July 2004, when sambarnett took me through on a quick tour. In this picture, my feet are firmly planted in Indiana, but Illinois is just on the other side!

People from Hammond are residents of the greater Chicago area, no doubt about it!

What to wear to Pierogifest?

A pierogi hat, of course!

One size fits all.
