A Look at the 2016 Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Williamsburg, Brooklyn

Viva Maria! Before Mass, the statue of the Blessed Mother is placed on a float with beautiful flower arrangements generously donated by devotees

After Mass, celebrants pinned donations on to the statue
The color guard are raring to go
Viva San Paolino! Our beloved San Paolino di Nola stood sentinel over the fairgrounds high atop the giglio
Msgr. Joseph Calise and Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio lead the procession
The float wends its way through the neighborhood
(Left) The procession passes Mount Carmel Triangle, a memorial for the original location of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church. (Right) Jordan and Dom place scapulars around the statue
As always, our pals Danny Vecchiano (left), Joe Peluso (right) and the world famous Giglio Band (below) played all our favorite festival songs 
Back at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church,
the Barbieri family pose for a pic by the children's giglio
