Father Piotr Narkiewicz of St. Isidore's Church celebrates his Polish heritage at the 45th annual Polish Town Street Fair and Festival.

The 45th annual Polish Town Street Fair and Festival is underway in Riverhead.

More than 150 vendors line the streets of Polish Town this weekend, offering just about everything under the sun. The Polish Town Civic Association is selling kielbasa sandwiches, pierogi, golumpki (stuffed cabbage rolls), babkas and beer at various booths around the festival.

The Polish Independent Club had the TKO Band — the polka band, not the heavy metal one — performing under a tent outside Polish Hall. There was polka dancing, more kielbasa and Polish beer, too.

The fair continues tomorrow from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
