“Festive atmosphere:” National Bakery and Deli goes all out on Paczki Day

MILWAUKEE — In the wee hours of the morning, on Fat Tuesday, February 28th, they were already in line – the dedicated souls that waited all year to get their hands on a paczki.

“It’s tradition to be here. I’ve been doing it for probably close to 30 years,” said Kenny Lovas, who was first through the door.

A Polish staple of Fat Tuesday, the idea behind the paczki was to use the last of the lard, eggs and sugar in one big bash before Lent.
