The San Gennaro Feast, NYC!

I met up with a friend over the weekend for dinner and on our way to the restaurant we decided to walk through the San Gennaro Festival in Little Italy, taking place until September 23. This year marks the 86th year of the festival (or “feast”) which is an 11-day celebration of “faith and redemption, a time for remembrance and reconciliation, and a time for celebration.”

The festival features religious precessions, parades, musical entertainment, carnival games, a variety of food stands and arts & crafts including jewelry! It’s a fun experience if you have time to check it out before it ends.
