The Feast of San Gennaro is a huge 11 day celebration that is held in Little Italy in NYC every September. It’s been going on for over 85 years. We haven’t been to it, but thanks to some folks in Hampton Bays, we had our own little San Gennaro feast just a few minutes from home. It’s the third year the town has hosted it and our second year in attendance. The only difference between last year and this year, as far as I can tell, is that the weather was nicer this year. And we spent a lot more money this year.
We watched a parade. We had some pizza and chicken parm sandwiches. And the kids rode rides. Lots of rides–at least it seemed to be to a lot to them (this is where all the money went!). They did the Ferris Wheel with Jeff because I am not ashamed to admit I don’t like to be that high off the ground. Caroline & Liam ventured into a “fun” house without adult supervision and LOVED every minute of it even though she confessed that at one point they were trapped in a room of mirrors. But her solution, she told me, was to follow some bigger kids out. That’s my smarty girl!
They did manage to convince me to go on the strawberry ride with them. Is it wrong to admit I felt a bit dizzier than I’d like to be by the end of it?
