May 14, 2012 by Mark
The city of Parma celebrated Polish Constitution Day on the first weekend of this month. Events ran from Friday, May 4th to Sunday, May 6th and included a parade, a Polish Happy Hour, and a Polonia Ball.
Parma, in conjunction with the Ohio Division of the Polish American Congress, hosted the celebration for the third straight year in recognition of the anniversary of Poland’s first constitution. The country of Poland adopted its constitution on May 3rd, 1791, and it was the first constitution following the ratification of the United States Constitution in 1788.
Large celebrations such as the one that occurred in Parma this month often make use of banner printing, poster printing and other printing services to help celebrate the occasion. Brochure printers may also be necessary to provide extra information about the event, as well as historical information relevant to the arrangements.
Parma’s festivities kicked off Friday evening with a Polish Happy Hour at the Donna Smallwood Activities Center, which ran from 6:00 pm to midnight. During the proceedings, the Miss Polonia Ohio contest was held, in which Ohioan women between the ages of 18-26 vied for the title of Miss Polonia, and a Junior Miss Polonia was also crowned. Food during the event was provided by Krakow Foods and the Little Polish Diner. Friday night’s events were followed up on Saturday with the Polonia Ball and the parade took place at 2:00 pm at Parma Circle. This was followed by an after-party celebration at the Little Polish Diner on Ridge Road.
