Tony Petkovsek Thanksgiving Polka Party

In one of the best hotels Cleveland has to offer, in the Downtown Cleveland Marriott Hotel, there was a traditional Thanksgiving Polka Party going on this past weekend - also known as Tony Petkovsek's 48th Annual Cleveland-Style Polka Extravaganza.

I was attending the Thanksgiving Polka Party in Cleveland for the first time this year and during the next few days I'll be posting some videos, photos and my own impressions from all the events and places I've had a chance to attend or visit.

  1. Hello Daria,

    Wow! What a nice job you did on the blog. I listened to ever one of the bands. Hoffman's trip to Europe was interesting as to his comments on the future of Polkas.

    Hope to spend New Years eve at the SNPJ. See you then.
