The 105th Fisherman’s Feast kicked off this weekend in Boston’s North End on North, Fleet and Lewis Streets. The statue of La Madonna Del Soccorso di Sciacca left her permanent chapel for a solemn procession to Christopher Columbus Waterfront Park for the Annual Blessing of the Fishing Waters. Angela Menino accepted a memorial honor on behalf of the late Mayor Thomas M. Menino who attended the feast every year. Angela Peri received this year’s Italian-American of the Year award for her in helping Boston’s autistic children’s community.
