The World’s Shortest Dyngus Day Parade Is Coming On Monday
Most of the world still has no idea what Dyngus Day even is, so I guess I’m not surprised that this is a thing. But evidently, the world’s shortest Dyngus Day Parade is coming on Monday! The coolest part is who is leading it.
According to The Buffalo News, the president of this year’s parade is a decorated World War II veteran.
His name is Henry “Cowboy” Kusmierczyk, and he’s received three Bronze Stars, a Philippine Liberation Medal and a Purple Heart
While Buffalo will be celebrating with a huge parade and parties all over the place, this parade will take place in Lackawana on Monday according to the mayor Geoffrey Szymanski.
Chuck and Wendy Jaworski will serve as parade grand marshals and the parade will begin with a mass that will be said partially in Polish at the Basillica.
Never heard of Dyngus Day? Here’s a video to show you a little bit of the Buffalo celebration.
