  • Do you know about the Dance of the Giglio in Harlem? If not, this is an event you won’t want to miss. Head to East Harlem on Sunday, August 13 to watch as men and women hoist a 75-foot tower, weighing several tons, into the air and carry it on their backs! This annual festival honors Saint Anthony of Padua and is organized by the Giglio Society of East Harlem, a religious and cultural organization of Catholics of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Shrine Church. If you're looking to see a giglio right away, Our Lady of Mount Williamsburg is currently lifting their own for their 130th annual feast. But hurry! The last day is July 16th.
