5th Annual Dyngus Day celebration held in Rotterdam

Posted:

ROTTERDAM, N.Y. – It wasn't just April Fool's day on Monday -- it was also Dyngus Day.

It's a Polish- American tradition celebrated the day after Easter to mark the end of Lent and the arrival of spring.

In Rotterdam the Casimir Pulaski Society presented its 5th Annual Dyngus Day celebration at the Elk's Lodge on Curry Road.

"We started five years ago at a local bar where we had 150 people show up and we have grown to one thousand people here today," said Dyngus Day coordinator Stan Wilgocki.
