Elvis, Pierogies, & Art

So, what’s going on in Detroit this weekend? Plenty! There are always festivals going on in the summer in Metro Detroit but I think the following list is quite diverse.

Mario Kombou will be performing at Elvisfest and he's English!Hydroplane races return to the Detroit River with the Chrysler Jeep Superstores Detroit APBA Gold Cup; July 10-12. General admission ticket prices are $15 for all 3 days but there are also discount tickets available for the unemployed.

The American Polish Festival is taking place this year at the American Polish Century Club; July 10-12. Last year they served 20,000 pierogies! Check out the event schedule, which includes The Polish Muslims.

Michigan Elvisfest is descending on Ypsilanti to celebrate the King of Rock and Roll; July 10-11. It takes place in Riverside Park on the banks of the Huron River and is billed as the “best and largest tribute concert in North America.” Sounds like a lot of fun and an opportunity to snap some great pictures.

Taylor Summertime Fun Festival; July 10-12. This doesn’t seem to be your average community festival; they have mud volleyball tournaments, a BBQ cook off, and a No-Limit Texas Hold’em Tournament.

The Royal Oak Outdoor Art Fair is a juried event taking place at Memorial Park; July 11-12. The fair features both fine art and crafts.

I mean, how do you choose between fabulous Polish food, Elvis, and boats? What are your plans for the weekend?

We're considering running down to Maumee (Ohio) for the lighthouse festival...with I-75 open all the way down to Toledo now, it's a quicker trip than having to take the I-275 detour down to Toledo.

We've been to the Royal Oak Art Fair a few times, and it's a nice enough show if you haven't been in a while. Elvis and/or pierogis sound interesting...a friend of mine used to bring me homemade pierogis from her yearly church fair, but I think the fair went kaput :(

Well, being 100% Polish and having a sister-in-law who is from Poland (I like to say she's from the mother country), I've had many a pierogi throughout the years. Still love 'em though! I thought the Elvisfest would be interesting, as well. We haven't solidified our plans for the weekend yet.
