CLEVELAND — Cleveland's favorite holiday is almost here.

Thousands of people will head to the heart of the city to celebrate Dyngus Day.

The ninth annual Dyngus Day celebration will take place April 22 from 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.

There will be polka music, a Miss Dyngus Day Pageant and a parade, as well as a bunch of Polish food including pierogis, kielbasas and paczkis.

The festival will take place on Detroit Avenue from West 57th Street to West 59th Street in Gordon Square.

There will be a free trolley to take attendees from Tremont to Ohio City and more.

“We are excited to transform once again the Gordon Square Arts District into the ‘Polish Triangle’ for the 9th Annual Dyngus Day celebration,” said Councilman Matt Zone. “Our culturally diverse, culinary rich, and artistic community welcomes you as we celebrate everything polish… Cleveland Style!”

Dyngus Day started in Cleveland in 2010.
