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.
