Enjoy these two slideshows from the Feast of Santa Lucia in Boston’s North End, held on Monday, August 29, 2011. Saint Lucy is the Protectress of Eyesight (View the story of St. Lucy.) The feast is organized by the Saint Lucy Society and is held on the Monday following the famous St. Anthony’s Feast. A few of the World Champion Boston Bruins also came out to pose with St. Lucy. Viva Santa Lucia!
The gallery includes the candlelight procession of the statue of Santa Lucia through the streets of the North End, accompanied by Italian street bands, flower girls and color guard.
