Pulaski Polka days and centennial celebration

Not only is Pulaski Polka days in swing this weekend, Pulaski is celebrating 100 years.

Pulaski’s Polka Days celebration has always put the village on the map, but this year organizers hope visitors and residents also celebrate the village’s ongoing centennial celebration.

Polka enthusiasts will descend into Pulaski this weekend for the four-day festival that kicks off today and features 25 bands from around the state and country. The annual Pulaski Polka Days is among the largest festivals in the Midwest, one that organizer Harold Otto says attracts people from across the country.

“A lot of new people are coming to the festival because the word is getting out there,” Otto said. “It’s really a community event.”

He estimates that between 45,000 and 50,000 were in the village last year during festival weekend. This year, the village also is celebrating its centennial with events throughout the year to mark its incorporation in 1910. (Source: Green Bay Press Gazette)
