Spirits were high and beer was flowing at the 39th Annual Polish Town Street Fair and Polka Festival this weekend.
With patrons being offered free brewskis if they could down the first glass in one long gulp, many visitors became a bit tipsy, spectators reported.
But despite the tippling, Riverhead Town Police reported Monday that the two day event went off without a hitch and was "pretty quiet."
Two were charged with disorderly conduct, a violation, and arrested on Saturday at 4:46 p.m., police said, likely due to public drinking that led to a disagreement.
