National Polka Festival- Ennis, TX
I live in Ennis, TX. Ennis is a wonderful city 25 miles south of Dallas of I-45. This weekend (5/23-5/25) Ennis is hosting the 42nd annual Polka Festival. There is a parade, dance contest, run/walk and the usual Czech food and beer. It’s a great reason to visit Ennis.
Polka dancing also isn’t terribly difficult to pick up. Whereas I can only do the chicken dance, anyone who can two step will have no problems.
Here are the bands scheudled to perform.
