Festival Polonaise 2017

We love attending summer events and this time it’s by our neighborhood!

Festival Polonaise is a weekend event to honor the local Polish community and share their natural heritage of Polish arts and culture, food and tradition.

The event takes place in Golf Mill Park – Niles , Illinois and the attraction includes: commercial booths (clothes, accessories and sponsors), amusement park for the kids, medical station for free blood pressure check and health advice, art exhibitions, stage for entertainment and what I love most – the food booth!
