Over 200 people attended the Rusyn Vatra festival in Burton, Ohio on June 3, 2017 under sunny skies to enjoy Rusyn culture, food and camaraderie. Visitors came from as far away as Dallas, Texas, Alaska and South Carolina.
The Lucina Folk Ensemble, Living Traditions Folk Ensemble, Slavjane and the Zumbercani Tamburitzans gave spirited performances.
The kitchen was busy serving ethnic foods.
A worship service Liturgy in Old Slavonic was held in the outdoor chapel.
The evening was concluded by singing around the bonfire.
