Wheeling throws a big bash for Polish Heritage Day!


Wheeling, WV (WTRF)- Sounds you know of as polka music fills the air in this part of town.

Dozens are out celebrating “Polish Heritage Day”: a perfect excuse to enjoy some Polish food and music, and that’s exactly what everyone here is doing.

They’re eating a variety of Polish food: kielbasa, pierogies, cabbage rolls, and can’t forget, the dessert.

It’s something they do once a year that locals and people from other parts of the country come to enjoy.

“This is the 11th year we’ve done this. It’s a tradition, as you can see. Polish live matter.”

Ed Gorczyca, organizer

Organizers and folks attending the event call it an all-around good time.

The day kicked off with Polish mass and ended at the Polish American Patriot Club with this big celebration!
