BUFFALO, N.Y.---Monday is Dyngus Day in Western New York.

Dyngus Day falls on the Monday after Easter and is a celebration of the Polish heritage.

Dyngus Day celebrations also return to the Central Terminal Monday. There will be traditional Polish food and live music there from 5 p.m.-11 p.m.

There will also be a contest to find the best kielbasa in town at the Broadway Market. Judges will pick a winner in the Wholesale, Commercial and Homemade categories. That starts at noon.
