Krysia told me about a Polish festival in Wisconsin next weekend
I hear it gets a pretty good crowd and its right on the lakefront
in downtown Milwaukee....

Its not that far from Chicago, I think its time for a roadtrip....

Is anybody else going to go?????

I guess it's up to us to take pictures and post them on the forum...So the whole Polska can see that America respects and keeps the Polish traditions alive.

I'd love to go myself with my Dad and a cousin, but as usual the timing stinks for me. Anyone from Michigan that would be interested in a voyage, to get to the Festival. I live in Muskegon where we have The Lakes Express. It's a ferry that will take you and your car to Milwaukee. I haven't checked the rates lately, but I'll give it a whirl today. If someone is interested I would even help with travel plans and directions. My e-dress is <nicsflix@zcloud.net> Milwaukee does know how to throw a festival. Good food, drink and events. I know the ferry runs at least twice a day. It's a 2.5 hour trip across Lake Michigan to Milwaukee. I think their festivals vary throughout the Summer. Have a Grreat Week!

Can't wait to see you again. Where shall we meet? Or should we just kinda bump into each other accidentally? Or call? Or just see what happens.
