Every third week in August in Riverhead, NY there is a Polish Fair.  Polish Town is a small town in Riverhead that Polish immigrants settled at the turn of the century.  All of my family is Polish, so naturally I go every year.  This year, I wasn't able to take off to attend the fair during the day.  I went after work and met my grandma in one of the dancing tents.  I'm 50% polish and my mom and her side of the family is all 100% polish, so the fair is always important to us.  In 2009 I decided to run for Polish Town Queen, and actually won the title.

                                                            This years Queen.

                                         A picture from 2009 when I was queen.
