Everyone's a Harbor Serb when East Chicago's St. George Church has its annual Serb Fest from 11 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. today and Saturday at 4021 Elm St.

One of the oldest churches in the region and among the oldest Serbian Orthodox churches in North America, St. George celebrates its 100th anniversary this year.

Church ladies baked traditional elaborate pastries, cookies, nut rolls, apple strudel, cheese pita and krofne (Serbian-style doughnuts) all week in preparation, and church men will be barbecuing lamb, pig and cevapcici (Serbian sausage) both days. There also will be roast chicken and muchkalica, a stir-fried vegetable and pork stew.

As always, there will be Serbian cafe music both nights starting at 5, provided by Mirjana and Dragan Negovanovic.

Although many members no longer live in East Chicago, they still attend the much-beloved parish.
