Festival Weekend: April 13-17, 2017

Happy Passover and Happy Easter Weekend!

As you may have guessed, there aren’t too many festivals and events going on this weekend.

I’m sure there are Easter egg hunts and brunches galore but, alas, I don’t cover those types of events.  Sorry.

Fortunately, I DO want to tell you about a crazy event that takes place in Cleveland on Monday…it’s called Dyngus Day.

This Polish and Ukrainian Easter Monday celebration usually involved boys throwing water on girls and spanking them with pussy willow branches (girls get their turn on Easter Tuesday).  So it’s not unlikely that you’ll see people in Cleveland with squirt guns as they go through Ohio City, Tremont and Gordon Square Arts District to get their fill of pierogi, kielbasa, cabbage and noodles and beer.

Participating restaurants and stores will have food and entertainment.

And, if you’re lucky, not only will you see DJ Kishka, who brought this festival to Cleveland, but you’ll see tons of people wearing the Kishka beard.

You may even see the crowning of Miss Dyngus

Be sure to read my review and to check the Dyngus Day schedule on their website at https://clevelanddyngus.com

 

Have a great weekend, everyone!  We’ll chat next weekend.

Love, Peace and Festival Grease!
