WILLIAMSBURG - Brooklyn residents enjoyed the 126th Giglio Feast at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in Williamsburg today.

The street fesitival was brought to Brooklyn by Italian immigrants more than 100 years ago to celebrate the return of Saint Paulinus from captivity.

Thousands of families come out for the festival and many say the best part is celebrating their Italian heritage.

The Italian festival will run through July 21.
