Fry some pierogis, crack open and piwo, pick yourself up some pussy willows, and break out the Bobby Vinton records, as Dyngus Day is upon us!
Justin Gorski, a.k.a. DJ Kishka joined the Ray Horner Morning Show to talk about this sort-of new annual tradition. Gorski has been the point person in spreading the word of Dyngus Day in the region, which originated centuries ago in Poland. Gorski visited Buffalo, New York, where the large Polish population has been celebrating Dyngus Day since the 1960s.
Dyngus Day is held the day after Easter every year, and is typically located in the Detroit-Shoreway, Tremont, and Hingetown neighborhoods in Cleveland.
