The 5th annual San Gennaro Feast of the Hamptons is gearing up to welcome thousands of visitors from all over Long Island at its annual East End celebration at Good Ground Road in downtown Hampton Bays. Taking place on Saturday, October 3th and Sunday, October 4th, Festival organizers expect this year's event to top the rest.

"The 2015 San Gennaro Feast of the Hamptons will be the best ever," shared Rick Martel, President of the Board of Directors. "Our fifth year is packed with over 100 vendors, 22 hours of music and entertainment, fireworks by Grucci on Saturday night and celebrity signings by Joe Ganiscolli from "The Sopranos" and former heavyweight contender Gerry Cooney, caricatures, face painting and games for the kids."

Festivalgoers can try traditional Italian fare, browse through goods created by local artisans, take a chance on the car and Vespa raffle, enjoy carnival rides and games, signings with notable names, entertainment, fireworks by Grucci, and much more.
