Thanks Tony for sharing your wonderful photos of Giglio Sunday from the 2018 Feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel and San Paolino di Nola at the Shrine Church of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
High atop the giglio, San Paolino stands sentinel over the fairgrounds
The Grand Turk, Neil Dellamonica, and his minions make their way to the boat
Revelers turned out in force for the celebration
The Giglio Band kept the festivities rolling

During the "Double lift," the boat and giglio meet in front of OLMC Church to the tune of the "March of the wooden soldiers"
