Enthusiastic and Exuberant – My Weekend at Danbury’s San Gennaro Festival

Danbury's first-ever San Gennaro Festival took place over the weekend on Ives Street. Thousands of people were in attendance each day and it's one of the best events I've ever attended. I was lucky enough to be able to work the event, broadcasting live Friday, Saturday and Sunday with I-95. I personally spoke to hundreds of people, and was able to work and see family and friends. I was so filled with excitement, exuberance and enthusiasm all weekend long.
