The dance floor under the picnic shelter on the Pierce County Fairgrounds came alive during the 38th annual Ellsworth Polka Fest this past weekend. The music was made for moving, so the feet kept flying as couples took their turns in front of festival audiences. The weather was very July-like when a jam session Thursday served as a kick-off to the mostly outdoor event.
