feast of san gennaro
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.
