Polkamotion by the Ocean held its 34th Annual Polka weekend Sept. 12-15. Polka fans from throughout the Mid-Atlantic and some from even farther, came to the Rehoboth convention center to dance, listen to top polka bands, socialize and enjoy some Polish food.

This is the 10th year that Polkamotion has been held in Rehoboth Beach. The first 24 Polkamotions were held in Ocean City.

Shown dancing to the music of The Beat are Lucille Herman and John Rodenski from Washington, Pa.
