The 85th Annual Feast of San Gennaro in NY Little Italy.
The feast celebrates the patron saint of Naples and it's traditionally held on Mulberry Street where many immigrants from Naples originally settled upon arriving in New York City in the late 19th and early 20th century.
Originally a day-long, block-long celebration, the feast today became a large street fair lasting nearly two weeks. The official feast day is September 19 when a solemn mass is held at Most Precious Blood Church followed by the procession of the saint statue up Mulberry Street, past Old Saint Patrick's Basillca, and back down Mott Street. A larger parade with floats and marching bands is held at the end of the festival. Because this video was recorded September 17-19; the grand parade, on september 24, is not shown here.
On the video: Red Mike's Festival Band, clips of Lucy's Palace Sausage and Peppers, Cha Cha's Bracciole, Johnny Fasullo's Famous Braciole and Sausages grilled over charcoal, zeppoles, cannolis, fried oreos, NY and NJ's Best calzones, Pickle Me Pete, Stuffed Artisan Cannoli, Torrisi Italian Specialties (a short clip of a woman at the Byggyz Beef stand holding a white box containing Torrisi's version of Chinese style spare ribs), Rubirosa's braciole sliders, clips of the San Gennaro statue procession, plus games and amusements.
