The Saint Ubaldo Society is happy to announce that it will be hosting its annual "Vejone" on March 3rd 2018 at Fiorelli's catering.
This event allows the town of Jessup to celebrate the success of last year's "Corsa dei Ceri" and pass the torch to the new Capitani and Capodieci for the Corsa 2018.
The "vejone" has become a tradition here in the United States over the past six years. The very first "Vejone" that took place in Jessup was named "Carnevale" due to the feast taking place around the time of "Fat Tuesday".
