The third annual meatball eating contest took place at the Feast of San Gennaro in Little Italy. The event was held in memory of Johnny ‘Cha Cha’ Ciarcia, who appeared in movies like “Goodfellas” and the HBO show “The Sopranos.” Ciarcia was also known by many in the community as “the Mayor of Little Italy.” Dramatic Opera singing and messy meatball eating came together to make this an event to remember.
