MAMARONECK, N.Y. – Thursday marks the start of the St. Vito’s Festa in Mamaroneck, being held for the third year in a row.
The four-day event had been held annually before it was halted in 2003. In 2011, the Roman Catholic parish brought it back.
The Festa, also known as “The Feast,” is held in a parking lot at the intersection of Elliot and Ralph avenues. It features classic carnival rides such as a Ferris wheel, a Whip, swings and more. Carnival games for children and adults, raffles, and plenty of Italian food will also be available.
The Festa will run from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. Thursday and Friday, 3 p.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday and noon to 10 p.m. Sunday.
