Everything you need to know about Buffalo’s Dyngus Day Parade 2015
“In the case of the Annual Dyngus Day Parade, here in Buffalo’s Historic Polonia District, it’s more of a demonstration in civic and ethnic pride. Unlike any other event in recent memory, this parade gathers people together with a sense of camaraderie and joy mixed with nostalgia and hope. An acknowledgement of who they are, where they came from and where they want to go. What started out as a rag tag group of passionate Poles with a few flags, a couple of pickup trucks and a band on a trailer, has turned into a big splash of Polish pride surfing a sea of red and white. Floats resembling medieval ships, fire trucks with sirens blazing and hoses squirting, polka bands blaring and families sharing memories and laughter as they stroll through the neighborhood tossing candy and beads to the little urchins gathered on the curbs. Who doesn’t like a parade? Not anyone that has ever been to the Dyngus Day Parade in Buffalo NY, that’s for sure.
Although technically the parade starts in front of Corpus Christi Church the best places to grab a perch are on the big streets as the cavalcade gathers steam heading down Broadway to Fillmore as it winds its way down Memorial Drive.
The parade will begin at 5:00 PM on Monday, April 6th, 2015. Check-in at the intersection of Memorial Drive & Paderewski Drive (Please look for our sign – only vehicles participating in the parade will be allowed beyond check-in point).
Portions of Paderewski, Clark, Sears and Playter will be blocked off for ALL general traffic beginning at 12:00 PM.
(Please view Shuttle Maps for parking and alternate routes).”
