After taking a break last year, the pierogi fest is back with more vendors at its new venue.
This year’s Croatian Lamb Roast Picnic will be held at Shuetzen Park in Millvale on July 13. The open-to-the-public picnic features spit-roasted lamb, supplied by "Tommy's Spit Fired Rotisserie," and a wide selection of ethnic Croatian food specialties. Should technology cooperate, the organizers will project the FIFA World Cup finals game during the afternoon, as well. The soccer telecast is not just about the current worldwide sporting event.
In Pittsburgh, the Croatian Soccer Club is an adult amateur soccer club established in December 2013. The current roster lists about 25 active players across wide range of ages. The group strives to provide a high-quality soccer experience, encouraging sportsmanship, camaraderie and love of the game while promoting Croatian name and culture.
The club plays in the Pennsylvania West Soccer Association's Greater Pittsburgh Soccer League (GPSL) and participates in events and tournaments throughout the area.
