UTICA, N.Y. - The Ukrainian Fall Festival is this weekend and cooks have been working hard in the kitchen preparing for the two day event.

While a lot of the excitement is centered around authentic Ukrainian food, organizers of the event say it's more than just food and fun, its about showing people what Ukrainian culture is all about.

"We want to tell people how Ukrainians are, we are good people, we are peaceful people, we are sharing our culture to others and now we are sorry for people who live in Ukraine because they suffer we want to help them with some support and this is the main reason for this festival, to help people in need in Ukraine because we have many Ukrainian people who need this help," Rev Michael Bundz from the Ukrainian Catholic Church said.

The festival is Oct. 18 and 19 at the Ukrainian Catholic Church.

There will also be games of chance, a lottery Christmas tree, and a table full of raffle prizes all up for grabs.
