YORKTOWN, N.Y. – Yorktown’s annual block party, the Feast of San Gennaro, was blessed with a visit from Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the archbishop of New York.
Dolan strolled among the crowds and posed for photos Saturday with Msgr. Joseph Giandurco, who he had just installed as pastor of Saint Patrick’s Church.
Other highlights of the four-day event included: traditional Italian foods such as zeppoles and sausage and pepper, a ferris wheel, red, green and white light arches, a procession with a statue of the saint, and performances from live bands.
Tony Grasso, 88, was the fest’s grand marshal. He is treasurer of the town's Chamber of Commerce and is the Chamber and the Town Board's liaison to the Planning Board. He also is a former Town Board member.
