Another classic festival, Little Italy’s Feast of St. Gabriel Italian Festival, is this weekend. A treasured tradition of St. Leo the Great Church, the festival includes games of chance, food, children’s activities, beer and wine, live music, a sausage-eating contest and a street procession. The festival, at Stiles and Exeter streets, costs $1, and runs Saturday, noon-8 p.m.; and Sunday, 11 a.m.-7 p.m. The celebration is hosted by St. Leo Church, the St. Gabriel Confraternity and Little Italy Lodge OSIA.
