Witam wszystkich,

I am from Rhode Island, USA and used to go to a Polish Church (St. Casimir's) that had 3 polish festivals per year, with great homemade Polish food, Polish music (Mike's Polka Kings), dancing, and lots of fun. Unfortunately, the church was closed and I have been missing the company of Polish food and friends. Does anyone know of any Polish Festivals in Southern New England coming up over the summer months? Thanks!


P.S.-This is by first post, I just registered today! Any good tips on navigating the site and/or communicating more efficiently?

I am going to take you back to a time when your grandparents enjoyed picnics in America..

During the depression years, Polish immigrants hired a stake body truck with hay spread on the floor. For 50 a family could board the truck along with other Poles,and head out into the country to a farm owned by a Pole. No one could afford an automobile..At the farm there were tables an orchestra and a dance floor. Everybody ate, drank, and were merry. Polka music and songs were heard for the whole day Food was plentiful. The kids played in the fields. At the end of the day, people mounted the truck on the way home.. Polish songs were sang by almost everyone.. Most were pretty well intoxicated

This is what we old timers call the good old days.I still remember one song that I will never forget
Jak ja bym wiedzialem, kiedy ja umrem. Ja bym zbudowalem zielaznem trumnem, A na tem trumnem ja bym siadzialem kwiaty zeby ludzie by myslawi zie ja bylem bogaty
Excuse my Polish, but this is what we call Polish Honkey.
