It is time for the statue of Saint Anthony to return home where thousands of feast goers are waiting in eager anticipation on Endicott, Thacher and N. Margin Streets. It is nearing the end of a grueling, but inspiring, 10-hour Sunday Procession through the streets of the North End as part of the 93rd St. Anthony’s Feast. There are still some stops to make, including the resounding joy of having the bands play in Pizzeria Regina before reaching the heart of the feast where confetti rains from the sky.
Night photography is my favorite and there is no better scene than the Grand Finale of the St. Anthony’s Feast to take on the challenge of lights and shadows with the terrific reward of deep and vibrant colors. So, after following the procession, I grabbed a rooftop perch (thanks Janine!) and the photo gallery below shows the results.
