The first event, the feast of Corpus Christi (the body of Christ) occurs at St Joseph Polish Church at 46th and Pearl on Sunday, June 7, after 10:30 am Mass.

Such fests are really amazing and a great way to have fun and improve your social circle. Last week I have been to nearby event locations at my place and saw many small similar events going on there. It was fun being there.
