Pulaski Days celebrations are under way in the Grand Rapids West Side area, with 15 Polish Halls serving traditional food and drinks.

The celebration started last Sunday, but much of the fun happens over this weekend.

Pulaski days was created to celebrate Polish pride, heritage and identity. The name honors Polish General Casimir Pulaski, who fought and died in the American Revolution. The festivities got their start in 1972 when a Grand Rapids man wanted a fun way to celebrate his birthday.
