Opening Night Music by Boogie Wonderland

It’s official! Minnesota’s favorite Disco Dance Rock and Roll Tribute band will be performing at 6 PM on Friday night, August 8 on the Polka Stage at the 2014 Twin Cities Polish Festival.

Boogie Wonderland play all your classic disco dance floor favorites from those great days of the seventies and early eighties… back in the good old days when trousers were flared, collars were wide and Saturday Night Fever was huge!



The band is made up of seasoned music industry pros, all with one thing in common – they love the funk! They aren’t a stuffy “function band” playing the same old corporate standards. Only the best soul/funk and disco is allowed in their set.

For more information about Boogie Wonderland, visit their website at: http://www.boogiewonderland.us/.

“An apple a day keeps Putin away”

Starting 08/01/2014, Russia has put in place a ban on Polish apples, pears, plums, cherries, apricots, peaches, nectarines and quinces. Russian sanitary watchdog Rosselkhoznadzor has also slapped an import ban on cabbage-like plants, including marrows and cauliflowers, claiming the fruit was infected. This ban coincides with stricter sanctions placed on Russia by the European Union countries and the US.

In response, media-savvy Poles have taken to the internet to protest with the social media hashtag #jedzjablka – ‘eat apples’. This intense internet activity was prompted by a blog post from the Polish business daily Puls Biznesu, which calls Poles to “stand up to Putin” and eat Polish apples and drink Polish cider. English-language Twitter posts have also exclaimed “An apple a day keeps Putin away” as part of the online protest.

“Poland is the largest producer of apples in Europe, with most of them down for export. Half of Polish apples are usually destined for Russia,” the blog post reads, adding that “for [fruit farmers] the closure of [Russia’s] market will be very painful”.

The daily calls for Polish internet users to use the hashtag #jedzjablka as a sign of defiance against the Russian ban, with many people taking to the ‘patriotic’ hashtag immediately in show of support.
