Festivals in Erie, PA

This Memorial Day weekend it’s finally warm enough for outdoor festivals. This one is “Troika Russian Festival” next to the Russian Orthodox Church on German Street, overlooking the lake. The festival runs through Sunday afternoon and on Friday night they ran out of food– big crowd!

The Bob Uleck Band performing at Troika.

Ask our UU Erie Board President if he knows the meaning of life and Doug Russell will say “give me the chords and I can create a bass line for it.” Yes, that’s him on electric bass, playing “I went down to the city zoo” (or one of many other fun tunes.) It was a joy to hear him perform with the Bob Uleck Polka Band.

Happy Weekend, Rev. Charlie
