GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WZZM) -- The 14 Polish halls in Grand Rapids filled early Friday, as Pulaski Days celebrations got underway in earnest. At Diamond Hall on the northeast side, the parking lot filled by mid-morning; cooking had begun at 4:30 a.m.
Cook Paul Skrzycki said the celebration of Polish heritage is "good for the community; everybody's having fun -- be Polish for a little while!"
On the west side, people of all ages filled the Polish Falcons Hall on west Fulton for lunch. Ted Szotko was one of those looking forward to all the food.
"Kielbasa, they got perogi, they got golumpki, and the kapusta and all that good stuff," he said.
