29.) Hungarian Fall Festival Review – Hiram – September 10, 2017

I finished my festival weekend at the Hungarian Center of Northeastern Ohio

…where people came together for the Hungarian Fall Festival.

Near the entrance, festival goers had to purchase food tickets…

…in order to exchange them at the food station…

…and be rewarded with stuffed cabbage, potatoes and more.

After picking up a drink at the bar…

…they could then enjoy their meal at one of the picnic tables.

Two dessert stations sat in the back…

…with offerings that included custard squares…

…and a chimney cake, which looked incredible.

A kids’ area helped the children burn off the sugar from dessert…

…while dancing and music helped adults with digestion.

Of course, there were more relaxing activities like the Chinese raffle…

…and a vendor area, where visitors could shop among…

…pottery (Jack-Pot Pottery)…

…woodwork (Littlewing)…

…fairie houses (Whittled Notions)…

…crafts and more.

This section also had a woman making slices of szalonna (bacon) bread…

…so I raced to get three tickets…

…in exchange for crunchy, salty bacon chunks, melted fat, peppers, onions and tomato…

…and it was heavenly.
