(Northland's NewsCenter)---Hundreds of people spent the weekend grooving and dancing the Polka.

Black Bear Casino hosted a three day International Polka Festival.

The Polka Festival is in it's 34th year and featured about a dozen bands.

Festival organizers say each year the event attracts more and more people from around the country.

"If you go through the crowd, you'll find out they are here from Ohio," Florian Chmielewski, the fesitvals founder said. "They are here from Massachusetts. They are from California, Arizona and they are from Las Vegas."

The polka festival will be back at Black Bear Casino next year in June.
