The 42nd Annual Boyne Falls Polish Festival offers numerous attractions—Aug. 4-Aug. 7—which kick off Thursday evening with live oldies music, a car show, carnival and a ‘50s & ‘60s outfit contest!

Friday, the fun starts early with the opening of the polka tent at 10 a.m. and Youth Day at 10:30 a.m., which typically features kids games (10:30-noon), pony rides, crafts and refreshments for kids 10 and under.
