La Festa Italiana 2010: The Holy Rosary Church organizes this wonderful street festival, celebrating Italian-American traditions, spirituality, with evenings of music, dance and authentic Italian foods.
Since I can remember the Holy Rosary Feast has always been a downtown Jersey City tradtion. Holy Rosary was my parish and my family has lived in the Village section of Jersey City around the corner from Holy Rosary, for for over 90 years. I love the area and the people. The old time Village people and the new residents that have made it home in the last 15 years. Wonderful people all of them living and loving their neighborhoods. This is the fabric of the Village section of Jersey City, and the Holy Rosary feast. This feast gets better every year.
If you want to enjoy a fun night out take your family to this feast. Smaller than St. Anne’s in Hoboken (Holy Rosary Feast runs one block between Monmouth Street and Brunswick, this feast is large in heart and spirit. The passion of the parishoners and the people who live in the Village section can be felt walking the feast and over the years it has become the “In Spot” to meet old friends and school mates and a place to make new friends too. You will love the “Olde World Charm” of this feast.
