Flight of the Angel Highlights 103rd Fisherman’s Feast [Photos]

After Sunday’s Grand Procession through the streets of the North End, the statue of the Madonna returned home to North, Fleet and Lewis Streets where thousands had gathered for the famous “Flight of the Angel” at 103nd Fisherman’s Feast in honor of Madonna Del Soccorso Di Sciacca. The angels recite the devotion in Italian followed by the entrance of the flying angel from a third story window coming down to the street to meet the Madonna Del Soccorso Di Sciacca. At the end, confetti rains on the scene in an astounding street celebration. This year’s flying angel was Victoria Bono with side angels Serina D’Amico and Haley Graffeo Dufresne.
