Sunday, July 8th

Feast Fest: We all know the charms of the Feast of San Gennaro (fake tattoos, goldfish that die within days, fried dough), but what do you know about the annual Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel and Saint Paulinus of Nola, hmm? Over in annoying Williamsburg, this “old-world Italian street festival” returns for the 120th frickin’ time with parades, children’s rides, abundant meat-on-a-stick and—most excitingly—130 men carrying an 80-foot-tall, 4.5-ton statue-float thingy through the streets, scaring the crap out of hipsters and Hasidim equally.

[120th Annual Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel and Saint Paulinus of Nola, 275 North Eighth Street, Williamsburg, now through July 16, 718-384-0223.]
