In Marblehead folks will soon smell the cabbage rolls a-cookin’ and hear the lively sounds of polka music at the 57th Annual Halupki Festival. The Festival, a celebration of Carpatho-Russian foods and culture, is presented each year on the third Sunday of August by Holy Assumption Orthodox Church, 114 East Main Street (Route 163), in Marblehead. This year’s event takes place on Sunday, August 18th.
The day’s activities begin with Divine Liturgy in the beautiful, historic church at 9:30 am. The choir of SS. Peter and Paul Orthodox Church in Lorain will sing at Liturgy. The parish family extends an invitation to one and all to join with them in worship.
