It’s Summertime, and in Marblehead, folks will soon smell the cabbage rolls a-cookin’ and hear the lively sounds of polka music at the 56th annual Halupki Festival. The event, a celebration of Carpatho-Russian foods and culture, is presented each year on the third Sunday of August by Holy Assumption Orthodox Church, 114 E. Main St. (Ohio 163), Marblehead. This year’s event takes place on Sunday, Aug. 19.
The day’s activities begin with Divine Liturgy in the historic church at 9:30 a.m. The choir of SS. Peter and Paul Orthodox Church in Lorain will sing. The parish family extends an invitation to one and all to join with them in worship.
