Festival showcases Slavic food, music, and crafts

The Annual Slavic American Festival Sunday featured live music, carnival games, bingo, a craft fair, and a rummage sale, but it seems most people came for the food. Among the menu items: holupki (cabbage rolls in tomato sauce), haluski (noodles with cabbage and butter), pirohi (potato and cheese dumplings with butter and onions), kielbasa, and potato pancakes.

The festival, sponsored by the Epiphany of Our Lord Byzantine Catholic Church on Woodburn Road in Annandale, has been going on for 37 years.
