FORT LEE, N.J.– Hundreds of people of all ages lined the street in Fort Lee to celebrate the opening night of the Saint Rocco Society's 87th annual Italian-American Feast.

Rides, carnival games, a dunk tank and vendors were set up along Main Street, where the Saint Rocco Society is located.

Comedian Uncle Floyd Vivino took the stage to perform his musical routine.

The feast will carry on through Sunday and cap off with a mass, mortar salute and the carrying of the patron saint statue.

"Viva San Rocco!" said society Vice President Rocco Palaia .
