Feast of San Gennaro Grand Procession in Little Italy

The annual Feast of San Gennaro, New York City's oldest religious street festival held its grand procession yesterday. The 11-day festival kicked off in Little Italy on Thursday, offering entertainment, music and a wide variety of food. The grand procession took place yesterday and featured former New York Governor Mario Cuomo and his wife Matilda as grand marshals. The festival, a celebration of the Patron Saint of Naples, runs along Mulberry Street between Canal and Houston Streets. The statue of San Gennaro was carried from its permanent home in the Most Precious Blood Church through Mulberry Street. The festival will run until September 22.
