Friday July 27, Saturday July 29 & Saturday July 29, 2007
PIEROGI FESTIVAL -- Whiting, Indiana
Festivities began on Friday, but the highlight of the day was the Int'l Polka Parade featuring Mr. Pierogi himself, the Babushka Ladies, the Lawnmower Brigade, Bagpipe Band and many floats. Our very own Kristi ( Dabs ) was one of the Babushka Ladies.
Saturday's highlight was the creation of the "world's biggest pierogi" weighing in at 78 pounds. Also at the Whiting High School Auditorium there was a free showing of the award winning polka movie "It's Happiness" which we all saw and enjoyed very much. Also the Babushka Ladies held a calendar signing, where they autographed a special calendar featuring 12 different ladies each month. In the evening the Polkaholics entertained the crowds with their wonderful music.
Sunday, the Pierogi Toss and the Pierogi eating contest were held.
