There will be arts, beats, eats — and polkas — this weekend as the Hamtramck Labor Day Festival celebrates its 27th year.

The four-day fete plays heavily on the city’s Polish heritage, with a Polka Mass at 11 a.m. Sunday (September 2nd) and a pierogi contest at 6 that evening. The annual Polish Day Parades start at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, and this year’s music lineup includes perennial favorites the Polish Muslims, as well as the Keilbasa Kings and Polka Floyd, which plays polkastyle versions of Pink Floyd songs.

Other acts on the Hamtramck music docket this year include Motown veterans Rare Earth, Ann Arbor hard rockers Powertrain, garage rock pioneers ? & the Mysterians and local acts such as the Earworms, the Muldoons, the Orbitsuns, Grayling and Danny D.

A full array of carnival rides, dancing and children’s activities will also be part of the weekend.

The Hamtramck Labor Day Festival runs 6-10 p.m. Friday (August 31st) and noon-10 p.m. Saturday through Monday (September 1st-3rd) on Jos Campau between Caniff and Carpenter streets. For information, visit the festival Web site at www.hamtramckfestival.org.
