Last Few Instrumental Photos from the National Polka Festival

Here are two more instrumental shots from last weekend's 2011 National Polka Festival from Ennis Texas. You can also see the NPF gallery on Flickr. These are two of my favorite shots of the weekend, one being the corner edge of a steel guitar. These were both taken handheld from about 20 feet away from…

National Polka Festival in Ennis Texas 2011 and It’s Age at 45

Last night started the 45th Annual National Polka Festival from Ennis, Texas. I'm not going to post a bunch of photos here on my blog but you can see the photos on my Flickr Set for the National Polka Festival.  This festival is something we try to go to every year, and it's an event…

National Polka Festival in Ennis Texas 2010

We have very few traditions in our house.  We usually try to have special days throughout the year, but not necessarily on the day everyone else decides it should be done.  One tradition we have maintained for the last five years is going to the annual National Polka Festival (their website needs a serious update)…

National Polka Festival in Ennis Texas 2009

This is a guest post by Deborah, she explains the Polka Festival far better than I do. Scott Things around here have been so crazy that I have been unable to post this years collection of images from the Polka Festival.  Now that the mid-terms are over and the grandson has returned home I can…

National Polka Festival Saturday Parade 2008

Why does it always seem like there are a thousand things to do when you get back from a trip. I try to minimize this by taking my laptop, phone, work, all that stuff with me whenever we go out of town, and it does reduce the workload when you return, a little. It also…

This is going to be a very very busy week, this week. My wife and I are leaving for the National Polka Festival in Ennis Texas where she will compete in the Polka Dance contest with her dad. Something she has wanted to do, probably since she was 10. I will probably not get in…

The Weekend is Here, Time to Get Ready for a Little Polka

This seems like it was a very long week, but the weekend is here. I was able to get quite a bit of work done this past week and next week will be an extremely busy week with the National Polka Festival in Texas. This past few days, in my spare time, I have been…

National Polka Festival in Ennis Texas 2007

We are finally getting back in the swing of things here at the house (pun intended) after being gone over the Memorial Day Holiday. The weather here is so dry compared to what it was this year in Ennis, TX. Everyday we were there it rained and was basically soupy everywhere you walked. Thursday morning…

Saturday at the National Polka Festival in Ennis Texas 2006

Jak se mas? or How are you? This is the phrase I learned this year at the festival. You can see other cool phrases and tons of other interesting Czech stuff by clicking here. Saturday's activities started early. We made it to Ennis by 9am so we could get a parking spot for the downtown…
