North Tonawanda's Dyngus Day...
In 2021, the first annual Dyngus Day Parade was hosted by the North Tonawanda Neighborhood Watch in North Tonawanda, New York. The parade proceeds down the Oliver Street Business Corridor, which is located in the city's predominantly Polish First Ward. The parade serves as a way to show pride in North Tonawanda's strong Polish heritage, as well highlight many of historic Oliver Street's small businesses to those visiting the city.
Despite the challenges of the COVID-19 Pandemic, the first parade was an overwhelming success. In 2022, the NT Neighborhood Watch decided to expand the festivities of Dyngus Day in the Lumber City by extending the parade route and having a post-parade party celebration complete with live Polka music, Polish food and drinks.
In 2023, the parade even grew larger with thousands in attendance. The post-parade party changed it's venue to the NT City Farmer's Market featuring live music by Capt. Tom and the Hooligans, polish food, beer, games, more.
If you, your friends, family, business, or organization would like to participate in the parade, click here to register. We encourage all Western New Yorkers to come and celebrate with us at the 2024 Dyngus Day festivities we have planned for Monday, April 1.
And remember, everyone is Polish on Dyngus Day!
