GLEN COVE - A summer tradition for many Long Islanders has begun in Glen Cove.

The Saint Rocco's Festival, also called the best feast of the east, started tonight.

The festival has over 12 rides for children and adult and lots of fun games.

John Newton, from Newton Shows, told News 12 Long Island that the most coveted prize this year is a Rastafarian stuffed banana.

Saint Rocco's Festival takes place at the Church of Saint Rocco's and ends Sunday.
