The 10-hour Sunday Grand Procession brought the statue of Saint Anthony to devotees in every corner of the North End, accompanied by eight bands throughout the marathon day. Bringing many to tears, the religious walk through the streets of the North End brought out families, friends and visitors to make devotions to Saint Anthony Di Padua Da Montefalcione. Starting at the feast on Endicott Street, confetti filled the air as society members carried out the St. Anthony statue led by multiple color guards and banners.
