We couldn't ask for better weather on Saturday  
The paranza carry the giglio past San Paolino's outdoor chapel
Danny Vecchiano and the Giglio Band performed
all our favorite patriotic and southern Italian folk songs
"Atlas," doing the work of three men
The giglio picked up a couple of extra passengers along the way
The capo gives the command to lift 
The paranza worked like a well-oiled machine 
Marching down Pacific Avenue

Donations are offered to St. Catherine of Sienna
The celebration lasted well into the night
with a special midnight lift and fireworks show
