Sunday's festivities across town included a wonderful historical tradition now revived - the procession of le bandieri and L'Immacolata, occurring today at the 2010 Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Festival.
Just adjacent to the downtown, the festival brought a procession of incense, music, a carried statue, flags of the regions of Italy, and honored guests.
A video of the festivities:
And some sights today from around the beautiful church:
I love these steps descending onto the bocce courts.
side note: anyone have a census of all the bocce courts in Youngstown?
The Festival ends Sunday. Stop on in and get some good eats.
