Dyngus Day!

This old Polish holiday dates back to the 1800s: on the day after Easter, boys would throw water at girls and playfully hit them with twigs. Clevelanders have brought back Dyngus Day in style. Just like St. Patty’s Day, you don’t have to be Polish to celebrate, but you should at least pretend. Break out the pierogies and kielbasa, the polka, and of course the beer at one of three area bars that are celebrating. An accordion parade takes place on W. 58th in the late afternoon.

Location: Gordon Square Arts District at bars and restaurants XYZ Tavern, The Parkview, Happy Dog, and Spice

Time: 12 p.m. to 12 a.m.

Price: FREE to attend
