Another beloved tradition will soon return from the COVID-19 doldrums. Bensonhurst’s annual Feast of Santa Rosalia begins Aug. 19, with all the fanfare that people have enjoyed for 45 years. The 10-day event includes rides, music, games for the kids, drinks and, of course, a vast array of food.

The feast will take place on 18th Avenue – a/k/a Cristoforo Colombo Boulevard – from 67th Street to Bay Ridge Parkway. On opening day, a procession will begin at 3 p.m. from the chapel of Santa Rosalia on 18th Avenue and 72nd Street to St. Dominic’s Church on Bay Ridge Parkway and 20th Avenue, where Mass will be celebrated at 4 p.m.
