DYNGUS DAY 2015: CELEBRATE THE RIGHT WAY WITH PIEROGI AND POLKA 

By the time the sugar wears off from Easter pastries, candy and lamb cakes, it’ll be time to fill up on savory pierogi, sausages and more — Monday, April 6, is Dyngus Day

Traditions of sprinkling people with water and flirtatiously hitting others with switches stems from A.D. 966, but food still plays a central role in the celebrations. 

South Bend is among the cities with some of the biggest Dyngus Day celebrations, the largest being in Buffalo, N.Y.
