East Harlem Italian Festival
You don’t need to believe in San Antonio’s glory to cheer on the 120 men dancing as they hoist a three-ton tower for the century-old Giglio Feast. The group will carry the giglio, embellished with papier-mâché saints to honor the Italian figure. And of course it wouldn't be a feast without zeppole, steak, shish kebab, seafood and all that good ol' munchies we've grown to know and love, from some of the best local vendors.
