Every year in May, Chicago hosts one of the largest and most pompous parades in the country – the Polish Constitution Day Parade. Held for the 124th time as of 2015, this parade is held in honor of the first democratic constitution drafted in 1791 in Europe – that of Poland – which also happened to be only the second in the world, following the United States Constitution. Every year, the Polish Constitution Day Parade gathers thousands of devoted Poles, as well as those who support the integration of the Polish and American societies. Thousands more are expected to gather around their TV sets to witness the coverage of the Parade by Polish and American TV stations. The Parade boasts Polish values, history, traditions and culture which are presented by the participants, while the Parade committee invites all Polish-American organizations, clubs, schools, and businesses to take part in this patriotic event and march alongside many of their natives and friends!
