GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - A Polish general who fought in the American Revolution is being celebrated this weekend in Grand Rapids.

And that means a parade, polkas, pierogi - and probably a few beers at more than a dozen Polish halls.

Pulaski Days is named for Casimir Pulaski, who fought against the British during the Revolutionary War. Michelle Kershner, the vice president of Pulaski Days, tells WOOD-TV that the festival is a celebration of Polish culture. It started 44 years ago.

Mary Novakoski is the Pulaski Days queen this year. When she talks to children, she says, “I can’t even explain the amount of honor that I feel.”
