For many Lehigh Valley residents who grew up in Allentown, Whitehall, Northampton, Macungie and other area boroughs polka is woven into the fabric of their being. Today's seniors grew up immersed in a Pennsylvania Dutch culture, blended with European influences from Germany, Austria, Poland and other nations. In many cases this included neighborhood participation in cultural and social clubs replete with house bands...and lots of polka.
Area seniors who care to relive their heritage and enjoy some polka will do so once again at Musikfest in Bethlehem. Musikfest is featuring numerous bands and blends of polka all week long. For schedules and information about polka at Musikfest click here.
