Milwaukee's Polish Fest: OK, so it's not quite Rusyn

It's going to be a while before we can throw a full-fledged Rusyn Fest, but in the meantime, the biggest Polish Fest in the U.S. kicks off at noon Friday, bringing a Slavic flavor to Milwaukee's Summerfest Grounds on the lakeshore.

Polish Fest runs through 10 p.m. Sunday with admission $12 at the gate ($10 for seniors 55 and older, and children 15 and under free with an adult.

On Friday, admission is 50 cents from noon to 5 p.m., and $5 after that. I've been there on a Friday evening, and it's usually pretty dead, so the admission deals make plenty of sense.

The highlights include vodka tastings and Tyskie Polish Beer being served on the grounds. Oh, and don't be surprised if you hear polka music.

Now, let's start planning Rusyn Fest.
