BUFFALO, N.Y. - March 29, 2012 - Break out the pussy willows, squirt guns, polkas, pierogi, parade floats and piwo (that's Polish for beer), because Visit Buffalo Niagara is joining in on the fun at the world's largest Dyngus Day celebration in the newest installment of its ongoing "Buffalo.ForRealTV" webisode series.
Buffalo.ForRealTV Host Nelson Starr and Dyngus Day Buffalo co-founder Marty Biniasz provide an insider's tour of Polish Buffalo that includes the Polish Villa II restaurant, Arty's Grill and the Central Terminal, which serves as headquarters for Dyngus Day, a quirky, upbeat party to mark the end of Lent, with thousands of revelers eating, drinking and dancing to polka renditions of rock songs. Along the way, they introduce viewers to Buffalo's impressive Polish heritage, the "Those Idiots" polka band and the "Polish Food Pyramid."
The video runs 3 minutes and 51 seconds and it can be found on YouTube at www.youtube.com/buffalocvb.
The first six "Buffalo.ForRealTV" webisodes covered Buffalo's beer scene, the Erie Canal Harbor, Allentown First Fridays, Buffalo Bills tailgating, Vidler's 5 & 10 and the Sportsmen's Tavern.
The "Buffalo.ForRealTV" series is funded by the Phyllis W. Pierce Charitable Trust, the Buffalo Renaissance Foundation and the Simple Gifts Fund. The videos are produced by Visit Buffalo Niagara in collaboration with John Paget of First + Main Media.
