This weekend, the community of Shenandoah will celebrate their annual Ethnic Heritage Festival on Saturday, August 23rd. Despite the recent events that have resulted in national attention and media coverage, this is one event that has the potential to move this community toward healing.
Over the last 13 years I have attended many county events through my responsibilities here at the Visitors Bureau. During this time period, I have come to know this event as one of the best events in terms of food and entertainment variety. Where else can you find such a variety of foods from Eastern Europe, to East Asia and to Central Amercia?
Shenandoah Pennsylvania has come to be known as the home of Mrs T's Pierogies, Kowalonek's Kielbasy and the Annual Ethnic Heritage Day celebration. Hopefully this weekend will bring all of our senses to that common interest in good food and fraternity.
Peace, Paz, Pace, Pokoj!
