Slovenian Center to hold fall celebration on Saturday

LEMONT – The Slovenian Catholic/Cultural Center, 14252 Main St., Lemont, will honor Vinska Trgatev with an outdoor festival from 4 to 10 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 28.

Vinska Trgatev is an annual Slovenian celebration that coincides with the Slovenian grape harvest time. The event will feature dancing, live music and traditional foods and desserts served from booths.

Festival goers are encouraged to try to steal hanging grape bunches while dancing. However, if caught by a “sheriff,” guests will be fined or sent to “jail.”

The event is for ages 18 and older, and admission costs $10.
