Every night, hundreds of dollars of San Gennaro Chips will be given away for food purchases, amusement rides and more offerings. Anthony Palmisano, CEO and President of the Society of San Gennaro Feast, is excited about what is in store this year. A fun atmosphere accompanied by “A Love Affair with Italy.”

The San Gennaro Feast in Las Vegas takes place twice a year in May and September. The martyr’s blood, which is normally solidified and of a dark color, occasionally becomes liquid and reddish, starts frothing, bubbling up, and increasing in volume. This usually occurs twice a year; on the first Sunday of May, the feast of the transfer of the Saint’s relics; also on Sept. 19, the anniversary of his martyrdom.
