GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Bakeries all over West Michigan partook in a long time tradition in West Michigan.
Today is Fat Tuesday and bakers spent hours Tuesday preparing thousands of paczkis for hungry customers.
Paczkis are a West Michigan staple this time of year. Paczkis are doughnuts filled with different kinds of jellies or sometimes Bavarian cream.
One bakery, Propaganda Donuts, just opened its doors two months ago on Division Ave. They expect a large number of Paczkis being sold today, so they made sure to get as many made as quickly as possible.
