Photos: The day when everyone’s a little bit Italian

It was a celebration of green, white and red Saturday at the Italian Festival of St. Liberata in Patchogue Village, where Main Street was bookended by rice balls and bocce balls.

Patchogue’s Italian-American of the Year, John Rocco, was also honored at the annual parade and street fair. Learn more about Rocco here.

The festival was set to run from noon through 6 p.m.
