Our friends from the Societa Gioventu Quagliettana
of Astoria, Queens joined in the festivities 
The color guard and standard bearer lead the way
The procession makes its way down Catherine Street towards Little Italy
Along the route, devotees pin donations onto the saint
There were light refreshments and dancing in the streets
outside Vanella's Funeral Chapel (40 Saint James Place)
The parade rolls down Little Italy's bustling Mulberry Street
Devotees carry votive candles during the celebration
Tony and Son's Festival Band were awesome
