Feast of San Gennaro

Poking it’s head above the tourist remains of Manhattan’s Little Italy, the 87th Annual Feast of San Gennaro showed that tradition still lives.┬áKicked off last week with the cannoli eating contest (which was sadly rained out), the festivities continue until Sunday, September 22nd. Thursday there will be a religious procession in which the statue of San Gennaro will be carried thru the streets (surreal…) and Sunday there’s a blood drive which is offering free cannolis to anyone who donates.
