"Cibulka" is actually a Slovak word, which means "little onion". I tell the kids that I teach, and they get kick out of it -- well, I shouldn't say that. It's more like they "have a field day" with it.
|Pavilion 4 - Slovak Day!|
|Simple Slovak Offerings|
Gina from IT wanted to join me and partake in the food of my people (like I had partaken in the food of hers on Italian Day), so we spent our break trekking to Pavilion 4. The threat of rain did not stop people for coming out for their Slovak vittles!
|The ladies serve up the food.|
|Pay, get a ticket, go get your food. Easy and efficient.|
|This was as filling as it looks!|
The highlight of the meal, of course, was the cheregy. A fried dough pastry sprinkled with powdered sugar. Every Slovak Day since I worked at the park, my grandparents asked me (or my brother, when he worked at the park) to bring home cheregy.

Unfortunately, I will be on vacation for Polish Day on August 7th, but the food is very similar on this day. If you missed out on Slovak Day, you have another chance!
