The Dyngus Day capital of the world will hose TWO different parades per usual in 2024. What time does the Dyngus Day parade start?

It is one of the most fun days of the year in Buffalo. Western New York is the city that celebrates the day after Easter more than everyone else. You'll see people using squirt guns and pussy willows to honor the tradition at the end of Lent. Dyngus Day is so big in Buffalo that there are TWO different parades.

Both parades will happen on Monday April 1, 2024. Here are the details for both--where the parades start, when the parades start and where some of the fun after-parties are.
