La Festa Italiana 2016, the Old World Italian Street Festival hosted by Holy Rosary Church, runs Wednesday, Aug. 10 through Sunday, Aug. 14 on Sixth and Brunswick streets. Founded in 1885, Holy Rosary Church is the first Italian Roman Catholic Parish in New Jersey. La Festa Italiana honors the veneration of Maria SS. Dell’Assunta & San Rocco, and offers the Downtown community the opportunity to party with its neighbors. This year’s festival will feature live bands, fun for the kids, food, souvenir vendors, and Italian delicacies made by Holy Rosary Church parishioners. The festival runs from 5 to 11 p.m. Wednesday-to-Friday, and 3 to 11 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. The last night (Sunday) at 11 p.m., the “Super 50/50” Raffle winner will be chosen. Last year’s ticket-holder won over $10,200. La Festa Italiana 2016 will have a five-star line-up of music performed by live bands and music groups. Every night of the festival, on Sixth and Brunswick streets, DJ Dan of Blueline Productions will perform as well. A Novena will be celebrated for nine days from Aug. 6-14, in veneration to Our Lady of Assumption. On Aug. 15 at 11 a.m., the Assumption Feast Day Mass will be celebrated in veneration to Maria SS. Dell’Assunta, and celebrate the memory of Most Rev. Thomas A. Donato, a son and dear friend of Holy Rosary Church. The Most Rev. John W. Flesey, a long-time friend of Bishop Donato is the celebrant. On Aug 16, at 11 a.m., the St. Rocco Feast Day Mass will be celebrated. A traditional street procession will follows both masses.
