Apartments for Rent in Sterling Heights, MI(show city information)
Sometimes all it takes for a good party is a little polka music and a kielbasa slider. At least that’s the case in Sterling Heights, Michigan, where the American Polish Festival is one of the city’s signature events.
Participants in the festival’s Pierogi Easting Contest compete for a coveted trophy and cash by consuming as many of the Polish dumplings as humanly possible in 10 minutes. Other delicacies include the “Polish nacho,” which consists of kettle-cooked potato chips topped with ground kielbasa, sauerkraut, and cheese sauce. Fried bologna sandwiches with onions are also popular, and Polish beer flows freely.
If that seems unusual, consider that the population of Sterling Heights is 19 percent Polish; nearby Troy and Warren also have large Polish populations. In this city known for events, Sterling Heights offers other festivals too, including the Sterlingfest and the Memorial Day parade.
