On Sunday, October 6th, 2013, we will once again display our noble heritage and culture at the 76th Annual Pulaski Day Parade on Fifth Avenue in New York City. This year's Parade theme, following last year's Diamond Jubilee Celebration, is March, March, Polonia, March the Proud Nation: "Marsz Marsz Polonia, Marsz Dzielny Narodzie".

On the first Sunday of October, Polish Americans pay tribute to their heritage and General Casimir Pulaski, one of their most celebrated heroes, by marching in the streets of NYC. Parade participants include: native Polish costumes, folk dance troupes, beauty pageant winners and distinguished members of the community. Members of the Catholic, Polish and American clergy watch the parade from the steps of St. Patrick’s Cathedral. Honorary guests have also included prominent Poles from the homeland. In 2005, Lech Valensa, the leader of Solidarity and first president of a democratic Poland served as Honorary Grand Marshal of the parade.

Since 1937, the Polish American Community of NYC has honored General Casimir Pulaski, a Polish aristocrat and American Revolutionary War Hero during the month of October. Mr. Pulaski joined General George Washington in the war for America’s independence in 1777 and became known as the “Father of the American Cavalry”. He lost his life in October 1779, at the Battle of Savannah. Since 1929, Pulaski Day has been observed annually in the U.S. by presidential proclamation. Over the years, many Americans have kept the memory of Casimir Pulaski alive by naming different counties, towns, parks and squares after him.
