The 123rd Our Lady Of Mount Carmel Feast is underway in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Also referred to as The Feast of the Giglio, this century-old religious and cultural feast is noted for the tradition of lifting the Giglio tower, a 4 ton structural structural tribute to Saint Paolino. The feast and its namesakes have quite a history that you can read more about on the website.

If you want to see one of the ceremonial and incredibly orchestrated Giglio lifts you can head over tomorrow night, June 14th. The festival lines the streets in front of Our Lady of Mt Carmel Church (275 N 8th St, Williamsburg) until Sunday July 18th, when the Giglio structure will be dismantled and stored until next year.
