Polish Constitution Day Parade in Slavic Village May 1, 2016
The Polish Constitution of May 3, 1791 was the first constitution to follow the 1788 ratification of the United States Constitution. May 3 was restored as an official Polish holiday in April 1990, after the fall of communism. It is celebrated in Cleveland with events including a parade in Slavic Village.
The Polish National Anthem was played on pocket trumpet before the start of the Polish Constitution Day Parade in Cleveland's Slavic Village neighborhood. Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson, Cleveland Chief of Regional Development Ed Rybka, Parade Grand Marshall Ben Stefanski and Gene Bak led off the Parade.
