Bal Karnawałowy
The Saint Paul Hotel
350 Market St.
St. Paul, Minnesota

The 2017 Bal was a great success (see you in 2018), here are a few photos courtesy of Ania:

This carnival ball honors a pre-Lenten celebration dating back several centuries in Poland. Highlighting the Bal is an award ceremony recognizing strong contributors to the work of PACIM and the Twin Cities Polish Communities. The formal event also includes a multi-course dinner, dancing to live music, and a silent auction.

Each year, PACIM honors an individual or organization who excels in promoting and supporting efforts to preserve Polish culture and heritage, thereby enriching society with the best of Polish traditions and ideals.

The registration deadline is Saturday, February 18.
