Feast of Santa Rosalia Begins Thursday in Bensonhurst

The BK Southie blog (which we've just added to our blog roll) sends word that the 32nd Feast of Santa Rosalia -- a ten-day street festival through the heart of Bensonhurst, on 18th Avenue from 68th to 75th -- begins this Thursday, August 27 and runs 10 days through Sunday, September 6.

Brian Hedden of BK Southie says the blog will be adding photos and information from time to time, so check back in. (There's already a nice photo montage of the action.)

Hedden says the festival organizers still run their show in an old-fashioned manner: "Even the posters in the storefronts are written mostly in Italian."
