Kirkcaldy Polish Club

… was set up in the 1950s by and for the many Poles
who remained in Fife after the war and
today teaches young Poles living in Fife about their roots
and culture as well as about their new home in Scotland …

… today the Polski Klub invited people to celebrate
that mix of Polish-Scottish culture …

… old friends met for the first time in ages …

… young friends tried to run down innocent bystanders …

…. folks with bizarrely painted faces won raffle prizes …
(I’m only bitter because I didn’t win)

… dangerous sword dances …

… and other highland jigs took place …
(observed by a person with strange green hair)

… and pom-pom dancers endured the rain to entertain us …
(who is that green haired person?)

… I missed the traditional Polish dancing and
have no idea if this dance was Polish or Scottish
but the crowd enjoyed it …

… then games were played and races won …

… while I sat down to a plate of pierogi …
(sadly not nearly as good as my dad’s but none will ever beat his)

… a fun day despite the indecisive weather …
rain … sun … rain … sun … rain … sun
