This year’s San Gennaro Festival in Little Italy is its 90th anniversary!
Even though I’m a native New Yorker, I’ve only been to San Gennaro a handful of times and it was always just a precursory look.
For its 90th this year, I manage to make it out there and experience it a bit more than usual.
It can get crowded but it’s a nice event that you can go with family and friends and just enjoy a nice day out with good eats and some fun little carnival games. The festival has been around since 1926 and as Little Italy seems to get smaller and smaller day by day, it’s important to hold onto some traditions of the past and embrace the coexistence of different cultures.
If you want to check the festival out, you still have time, it’s running until next Sunday September 25th.
Enjoy the mew life,
