26th Annual Pierogi Festival Aug. 16-17, 2008

Back in January, I mentioned how we first encountered the Annual Pierogi Festival hosted by Sweetest Heart of Mary parish when we first arrived in Detroit in August of last year:
When we first arrived in Detroit and were driving through the neighborhood, we were going East on Canfield St. and came to Sweetest Heart of Mary Catholic Church, which sported a banner announcing the August 12th 2007 Pierogi Festival.
Well, it's that time of year again, almost. I just received an email announcing the following:
