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.
