We stood in a light rain to get the dinner plate for $11.00 each. The plate included kielbasa sausage, sauerkraut, stuffed cabbage roll, 3 pierogi and a dinner roll. We were lucky to find a place to sit inside. The meal was delicious. We have had pierogi in Canada. It is similar to ravioli. These had a cheese filling. And I know cabbage rolls take a lot of work to make. The best I can ever remember were those made by Anna Moore, my sister’s mother-in-law.
After eating, the rain had stopped. I went to the beer tent and bought one of the St Stan’s Baltic Porters that were brewed especially for this festival by a local brewery. Dave went to the dessert tent. For the same price as my beer, $5, Dave got a cup of coffee and 4 different desserts. Then we met by the music tent. The polka band was from Ohio. They were a young group, probably in their 20-30's. It was fun to see so many families enjoying themselves and dancing the polka. They did a medley of gospel songs in polka style. I guess I would expect that in the south. We didn’t stay long, didn’t even dance. But with the right bunch of friends, I can see where this could have turned into the German tent back in Rapid City.
