Giglio Italian Feast Spectacular
Children's Giglio at the Giglio Italian Feast Spectacular

This 12-day Italian festival has taken place in Williamsburg since 1903 and honors Saint Paolino with a re-enactment of his release from captivity, plus parades, artwork, kiddie rides and tasty Italian eats like zeppoles and braciola. The fest's signature event features a giant hand-crafted tower—plus a 12-piece brass band—being carried through the streets on the shoulders of 125 men. Don't worry, adults don't get all the fun: kiddos ages three to 12 carry their own smaller tower on July 7 (6pm). All ages.
