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.
