St. Mary Festival Celebrates Feast Of St. John

By Miriam Rosenberg


Up, up and away. Up, up and away. Hundreds flocked to St. Mary’s Star of the Sea Church in Far Rockaway for its annual Fiesta Internacional – the International Feast of St. John the Baptist. The all day event featured foods from different lands, and for the children three bounce houses, a pirate ship that lifted into the air and cotton candy.



With three bounce houses everyone got a chance to jump, climb and slide – some with a little help from their papas. Photos by Miriam Rosenberg With three bounce houses everyone got a chance to jump, climb and slide – some with a little help from their papas. Photos by Miriam Rosenberg

A highlight every year is the tables with foods from different lands. A highlight every year is the tables with foods from different lands.
