the procession of le bandieri and L'Immacolata

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.
