GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Red shirts and polka dots filled Michigan Street in Grand Rapids Saturday morning for the annual Pulaski Days parade. 

All 14 Polish halls in the city have opened their doors to the public for free to celebrate Pulaski Days this weekend. The annual event, now in its 46th year, is a celebration of all things Polish: food, dancing, music and more. 

“It’s wonderful, it just reminds you of your heritage and the wonderful people that belong to the Polish community and it’s just, it’s great. Everyone comes together and has a wonderful time,” said Chris Ringelberg, who attended the event. 

The Polka Mass will be held at 11 a.m. Sunday at John Ball Park. If it rains, the service will be held at 11:15 a.m. at the Knights of Columbus.
