feast of san gennaro
This weekend is all about the festivals. Among your options are celebrations of honey, Italian food and culture, oysters, Nordic cuisine, and street food. With careful planning, no doubt you can hit all five.
The Feast of San Gennaro began Thursday in Little Italy, with tons of food and an assortment of entertainment.
The Feast of San Gennaro kicks off Thursday afternoon in Little Italy with the 12th Annual Cannoli Eating Competition.
Some opponents have launched a petition demanding that Mayor Michael Bloomberg stop a replica of a Rikers Island jail cell from being mounted in Petrosino Square in SoHo, calling the exhibition an insult to Italian-Americans.
From cannoli-eating contests to ghoulish goblins walking the streets, fall is the time to let loose and have a bit of fun. See the top picks for fall festivals below.
