Day Of Celebrations

Monday is not just a big day for South Bend's Polish community.

South Bend's African American community is celebrating Solidarity Day.

Much like Dyngus Day, it is a chance for people to get together for some fun and good food.

It started back in 1971 as a way to include more people in the Easter Monday celebrations.

Both events have expanded to include everybody in Michiana.

The city is celebrating both events by changing the names of two streets in South Bend.

At 10:00A.M. Monday the corner of Ford and Warren Streets will become "Dyngus Day Drive."

A half hour later the corner of Western and Laurel Streets will become "Solidarity Drive."
