Catching up from last week’s Grand Finale at the 106th Fisherman’s Feast in honor of Madonna del Soccorso di Sciacca, the famous Flight of the Angel was held August 21, 2016 in Boston’s North End.
Two side angels on balconies recite an Italian devotion followed by the entrance of the flying angel from a third story window coming down from the sky to meet the Madonna Del Soccorso Di Sciacca. At the end, confetti rains on the scene in an astounding street celebration. The 2016 Flying Angel was Angelina Palazzolo with Side Angels Ava Travato Bonavita and Sophia Fialkosky. (See video here.)
