Serb Fest returned in 2004 and ultimately proved to be everything it was anticipated to be for the 12 months leading up to it. So much came together during the year including the advent of this website and more importantly, the "Fire & Ice Extravaganza" documentary that was officially released the night of Turkey Run Eve. For the second straight year, we once again, drastically increased our numbers in attendance, bringing the total to 12 attendees. This of course yeilded an incredible 5 orders of cevapcici and approximately 13 cases of beer. Despite a few hang-ups to start the weekend, most notably, forgetting $80 worth of tomatoes at Jovan's house, we were able to regroup and replace the tomatoes at a "farmer's market" type stand along the side of Highway 41 just outside Marshall, IN. The equivalent number of tomatoes coincidently only cost $28 the second time around.

Who could possibly think of Turkey Run 2004 without feeling blessed to have spent the weekend with some old familiar faces, including Cica Bora, Teta Cica, Cica Daca, & Teta Lela. We were truly in the midst of legends and their presence meant that much more after having missed them in 2003. We were also thrilled to have Crazy Dan Boskovic back this year after his absence in 2003 as well. The atmosphere is electric when he enters the scene, especially with an indian head-dress.

TR '04 only solidified the claim that Memorial Day weekend is in fact the most anticiapated weekend of the year!

The beer supply was dominated this year by Old Style. In addition to the token 30 pack of Pabst Blue Ribbon, other staples such as High Life, Lite, Corona, & MGD also filled the coolers.
