If you need a big get-away, but just can't afford the air fare or the gasoline to a far off destination, make plans to go to a Russian festival.
Saturday November 5th and Sunday November 6th, St. Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church in Brookside, will hold its annual Food Festival.
There will be traditional eastern European foods and pastries, Russian imports and Russian dancing.
You will feel like you are being transported into another land. But your travel costs won't crimp your budget.
For an international experience, try cuisine like borsch, holupki, pirohys and more.
The Sisterhood's Slavic Russian cookbook is available.
It is also a step back in time. St. Nicholas parish was founded more than a hundred years ago in Brookside by immigrants from Galacia and western Ukraine.
