Hungarian Americans marched at the Pulaski Day Parade

The Pulaski Day Parade is an annual event in New York City to commemorate Kazimierz Pulaski, a hero of the American Revolutionary War.

Pułaski was a Polish nobleman, a soldier and military commander, and “father of the American cavalry”. Born in Warsaw, he came to America to help in the cause of the Revolutionary War. He saved the life of George Washington, became a general in the Continental Army, and created the famous Pulaski Cavalry. He was gravely wounded at the Battle of Savannah and died in 1779 at the age of 34.

This year’s parade was held on Sunday, October 5, featuring colorful Polish American dancers, marching bands, school groups and organizations. First time ever, a group of Hungarian Americans joined the parade and marched behind the banner “Hungarians with Poles” expressing the traditional friendship between the Hungarian and Polish people.
