Polish American Cultural Center
April 29, 2018

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 and ceremony at the Polish American Cultural Center in Cleveland's historic Slavic Village neighborhood.

See video and photos from the Parade

After the Parade down Fleet Ave., a ceremony was held behind the Polish American Cultural Center.
