Hulberton Local Customs: 1 reviews and 2 photos
Much of Hulberton and parts of Holley are known as "little Italy" because of the number of people with Italian ancestors.
Annually (weekend after Labor Day), St. Rocco's Festival is held in Hulberton. It is a fairly quiet festival with several lawns set aside for groups of bocce players. Tables and tents are set up to provide great food: pizza fritta and the pasta fagioli. The loud speakers have tarantellas bounding across the crowds: funiculi funicula. There are live entertainers on stage to provide energy to the gathering. The musicians use the old-time instruments that go with the ethnic tunes.
There will be souvenier vendors and a small parade of floats commerating St. Rocco (patron saint against plagues).
See website below for times.
