Founded in 1892, St. Elizabeth of Hungary Church isn’t only a beautiful church located on the east side of Cleveland…
…it’s the very first Hungarian Roman Catholic Church in the entire United States.
When we drove in, the gated parking lot was mostly full, but we were fortunate enough to find one spot in the back. As we walked in the church building, a woman in front of us needed assistance to go down the steps to the festival. So as not to make her nervous, we hung back as others helped her and we took advantage of the time…
…by going to first check out the church.
Unfortunately, the lights had already been turned off so there wasn’t much to see.
…to join everyone else.
…until we saw how great the food looked.
…even looking Hungarian…
…and we continued wandering through the area and looking around.
…with various keepsakes brought from afar.
But there wasn’t a single grape involved with those baked goods.
The reasoning behind the festival’s name was as obscure as the church interior above it.
