Mark your calendars: Feast of San Gennaro is September 25-27

Mark your calendars for Hollywood's 8th Annual Feast of San Gennaro, which will take place September 25-27 on Hawthorn Avenue between Highland and Orange. This year's festivities will feature food, music, carnival rides, bingo, a children's area, and more.

Thursday night's Prima Notte opening gala will benefit the San Gennaro Foundation that supports programs for underprivileged children, families, and homeless people in Los Angeles. At this event, LAPD Assistant Chief Sharon Papa will receive the San Gennaro Foundation's Humanitarian Award. Television personality and event co-founder Jimmy Kimmel will host the evening fundraiser along with Adam Carolla.
