Saturday-Sunday: Feast of Saint Gabriele

Aug. 20-21

Three words: sausage eating contest. Also, cannoli filling contest. Also, bocce tournament. Also, vino. Also, fried dough. Okay, there are a lot of reasons to pay a visit to Little Italy this weekend. But really, any of those things is reason enough. Especially the sausage eating contest—seriously, what would a trophy for that look like? Also taking place at the annual two-day festival include games, music, vendors, kids' stuff, and a parade (after St. Leo's 9:30 a.m. mass on Sunday) merging old Baltimore and Italian traditions. Noon-8 p.m. Saturday, 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Sunday, St. Leo's Catholic Church, (410) 675-7275,, free. (Maura Callahan)
