Buffalo, N.Y. (WKBW release) -- Organizers of Buffalo, New York’s annual Dyngus Day Parade invite social groups, ethnic organizations, schools, marching & polka bands, dancers and performers to participate in the annual Dyngus Day Parade. The parade will take place at 5pm on Monday, April 9th.  
 
Buffalo’s Dyngus Day Parade will march through the Historic Polonia District passing numerous official Dyngus Day Buffalo celebrations including those at Central Terminal, St. Stanislaus Church, Corpus Christi Church, Arty’s Grill, Pussywillow Park and the Adam Mickewicz Library and Dramatic Circle.

“You do not need to be Polish to participate as 'Everyone’s Polish on Dyngus Day',” explains 2012 Parade Director Bernadette Pawlak. “In addition to promoting Polish pride, the parade is a community-wide celebration of spring and things that are unique to Western New York...like Dyngus Day.”
