Mr. Pierogi

Some say the Fest has produced its own cultural icon with Mr. Pierogi (pronounced “pi-ROH-gee). Mr. Pierogi loves mingling with the crowd, taking selfies, flirting with the buscias and high-fiving kids. He’s the ambassador of Old World goodwill. He hates being asked if he is hot, because even though Pierogi Fest™ takes place in the July heat, it’s still not nearly as hot as his frying pan. You will find him in the parade on Friday night singing and bantering with the crowds, during his namesake songfest on the Saturday, and at the Pierogi Eating Contest and the Pierogi Toss on Sunday afternoon. Other than that, catch him if you can; he’s like a doughy ninja.
