The Whiting-Robertsdale Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the City of Whiting presents Pierogi Fest each year, and this year, from July 26-28, families will flock back to the region for their favorite festival.
Laurie Brown, executive secretary for the Whiting-Robertsdale Chamber of Commerce, says the festival is always a great time. “It’s our parade that makes us so popular. It’s a lot of fun and everyone in it tries to do something funny. It changes every year and you have no idea what is going to happen. We have all types of entertainment from religious presentations to country, rock and roll, Polish bands, and our international dancers. We have Mr. Pierogi’s song festival and the Pieroguettes. The beer garden is huge with live rock and roll, from the ‘60s to current bands and we try to use local people. We have kids’ games, all types, and we have non-for-profits that host the games. We have clowns that come in and do skits, and we have rides like bumpy barrels and a carousel and bounce houses. South Paw, the White Sox mascot, Rusty the Rail Cat comes in and they’re in the parade, so there is a lot of fun for ages 0 to over 100.”
