The MN Polish Fair was Wonderful!

The Polish music still plays in my head as review the mental – and digital – images of polka dancers, red and white memorabilia everywhere, and the ambient aroma of fine Polish cuisine.  My original intent was to capture the story of a young couple’s surprise engagement on stage during the Dolina Dancers.   The unanticipated delight was a perfect August afternoon at the Twin Cities Polish Festival at St. Anthony Main on the Mississippi – notepad in hand and camera at the ready.

According to plan, I did my best to capture the delightful experience in a piece for the following day’s Twin Cities Daily Planet.  This was a quintessential Poking Around experience to be shared with readers of this blog committed to that precise purpose.

Hum a polka and tap a toe as you read along.
