Celebrating Polska

Born in London, moved to Chicago in 2007, fell in love with Wrigley Field. Doesn't that make me a Chicagoan?

Tomorrow is Pulaski Day. A celebration of the Polish noble Kazimierz Pulaski, who is often called "the father of the American cavalry."

Pulaski saved George Washington's life. A hero of the Revolutionary War, he died in the Battle of Savannah. Pulaski is revered within the Polish community and at Navy Pier today a celebration of music, dance and all things Polish was held.

The following slideshow documents some of this celebration:
I found this event to be entirely pleasant.

My Poland knowledge is by no means great but judging from today's event Poland has a rich and proud culture. It's not just sausages and beer (that's Germany, I think).

Dobre zdrowie
