The centerpiece of the day is the parade at 5pm. Organizer Bernadette Pawlak tells WBEN it's in its 11th year and is bigger and more unique than ever. "There's no where else in the world, where instead of catching candy (which you can catch), you can also catch a butter lamb, a loaf of rye bread or a kielbasa. Yes, she said kielbasa! (sealed of course).

The Parade starts at Corpus Christie Church on Clark street on Buffalo's East side, heads down Broadway to Fillmore, to Peckham, to Memorial Drive.  It ends in front of the Central Terminal where "Pussy Willow Park" has been set-up with tents, food trucks and music along with bus service to countless other Dyngus venues.
