This weekend marks the 97th Feast of Saint Anthony in Boston’s North End. Started in 1919 by Italian immigrants from the small town of Montefalcione in Avellino, Saint Anthony’s Feast has become the largest Italian Religious Festival in New England.

Although the festival officially starts this evening at 7PM most of the activities are on Saturday and Sunday, culminating with the ten hour procession through the North End starting at 12 Noon on Sunday, August 28th.
