Polka's popular choice for Ellsworth fest goers July 7-10

Ask any dancer or listener at the Pierce County Fairgrounds in Ellsworth July 7-10 and the polka is likely to be the type of dance and/or music they say is their favorite.

That's because the Ellsworth Polka Fest is returning to the community for the 36th year those days. The fairgrounds will be headquarters for the entertainment and related activities intended to appeal to polka fans and fun seekers alike.

Two wooden dance floors will accommodate those interested in doing their moves. A dozen bands will be on hand to provide the musical accompaniment.
