Each year, on the first full weekend of October, the city of Grand Rapids celebrates Pulaski Days. Pulaski Days was founded in 1973 by Ed Czyzyk and Walter Ulanch as a way to support the local social clubs by sharing Polish culture with the entire Grand Rapids community. The annual event has now grown into a week-long celebration to be shared with friends, family, and strangers alike.
All Saints Academy joined the fun this year as we entered the parade, an annual tradition every Saturday of Pulaski Days weekend. Over 20 participants walked the mile route down Michigan St. from College Ave. down to Diamond Ave.
Even more ASA families lined the road to watch the parade, waving and collecting candy. Even though the weather forecast wasn’t the best there was a brief window that allowed us to have a great time celebrating the All Saints Academy community.
