The Johnstown Slavic Festival was a fantastic time this year! We had a wonderful day of programming and were blessed with great weather, too. This quote, from The Tribune-Democrat’s wrap-up story on the event, sums it up: “Right now I’m drinking a beer which I have never heard of, eating food that some people can’t pronounce and probably about to be dancing to music that you can’t hear on the radio,” said Jen Holmolka of Johnstown. “Definitely a good time.”
We would like to extend our warmest thanks to everyone who entered Baba’s Nutroll Throwdown, held for the first time as part of this year’s event, and our congratulations to the winners:
1st Place: Carrie Curry and Kathy Parseghian
2nd Place: Nancy Miller
3rd Place: Amelia Vatavuk/Vatavuk Diner
4th Place: Debbie Ritko
We would also like to thank all the volunteers, vendors, nutroll contest judges, performers, the festival committee, and everyone who came out to support the event with such enthusiasm.
Finally, our thanks to all our sponsors, especially Best Window & Door Company, 1st Summit Bank, IMAC, Provia, Robert Ramos, and Vision 2025 & Discover Downtown Johnstown Partnership.
See you next year!
