BUFFALO, N.Y. - The annual end-of-Lent party known as Dyngus Day was celebrated in Buffalo on Monday.
From Kielbasa contests to a grand parade, folks from all over descended on the Broadway-Fillmore neighborhood for the day-long party.
Festivities are held in other parts of town as well. The common theme: music, dancing and food... lots of food.
Photojournalist Dooley O'Rourke checked out the party just as things were getting started.
