It's the 18th annual Ukranian Folk Festival!
July 14, 2009 (WPVI) -- The Delaware and Lehigh Valleys Celebrate Ukraine's Independence.
Exciting! Dazzling! Exhilarating! Soulful!
All these words and more describe but by no means capture the essence of Ukrainian folk art, music, and dance!
From the rich color and deep symbolism of the delicate "pysanka" (Ukrainian Easter Egg) to the thunderous, climatic, power, rhythm and strength of "HOPAK" - the world's most exciting ethnic dance, and every brilliant "Kolomiyka" (polka) and soulful folk song in between, we invite you to experience the Ukranian Folk Festival!
Enjoy a festival stage show, a public dance, Ukrainian foods and baked goods, picnic foods, kid's fun area, and Ukrainian hospitality.
The celebration begins Sunday, August 23, 2008, at 12:00pm and lasts until 8:00 pm at the Ukrainian American Sport Center -- Tryzub, County Line and Lower State Roads, Horsham, Pa.
