As you read in last week’s issue of The Review, the Hamtramck Labor Day Festival is back in business this year.
After spending a year or so in a pandemic lockdown, that’s music to our ears.
It will be exciting to once again see friends and neighbors for our yearly end-of-the-summer party.
The downside, though, is that the annual Polish Day Parade will not return this year, nor will it ever come back to Hamtramck. Parade organizers have decided to relocate the parade to the City of Warren.
That’s been a move discussed and anticipated for years.
Well, they finally gone and did it.
The parade and festival served each other well these many years – at least 30 or more.
We get it that Hamtramck is no longer associated with being a predominantly Polish-American town.
Well, the Labor Day Festival will survive. We wish the parade folks luck.
See you festival weekend, which is Sept. 4-6.
Oh, by the way, there will be one more party coming up in the next few weeks (and by few, we mean: these summer weeks fly by).
The Hamtramck Music Fest is also returning, but not at it is usual time of the year.
Instead of being held in March, the festival will be held during the first weekend in August – at least for this year.
From what we hear, there will be a variety of performances, both inside and outside.
Looks like a fun summer ahead.
