Polish Festival

SCHNECKSVILLE, Pa. -

The Lehigh Valley got a little taste of the traditions of Poland Sunday.

The Schnecksville Fire Company hosted its annual Polish Festival.

The event included a noon procession and the blessing of the harvest fruits.

Traditional Polish dress and food was prepared by volunteers from the Polish National Alliance.

One-hundred percent of the festival's profits are donated to local orphanages and churches.
