From soup to polkas, it’s a Hamtramck party


By Charles Sercombe

Throw together cold, rainy weather, eight different kinds of soup, Polish folk dancers and a rockin’ polka band and what do you get?

It doesn’t matter what kind of weather it is, it’s a Hamtramck party.

St. Florian’s first-ever Soup Festival was smashing success last Sunday. Hundreds of parishioners and party lovers turned out for the all-day event.

Besides hearty soups, the parish dished up Polish favorites. Looks like this festival will be a bookend to St. Florian’s spring Strawberry Festival.
