More than 120 food vendors, live entertainment, eating contests, a classic car show and an evening of fireworks — all are in store at the ninth annual San Gennaro Feast of the Hamptons this weekend in Hampton Bays. Admission is free to the two-day event on Saturday and Sunday, which runs concurrently with a carnival from Friday to Sunday on Good Ground Road, near the Long Island Rail Road train station.

Sunny skies are forecast, with pleasant temperatures all weekend, making for a great outdoor festival, said organizer Rick Martel, the president of the nonprofit that puts the festival on every year. “The weather’s going to be great,” he said. “The forecast is awesome.” San Gennaro is the patron saint of Naples, a region of Italy, and celebrations are held in his honor in September in Italy, as well as in Little Italy and The Bronx in New York City.
