At the end of Sunday night, thousands of feast goers and devotees gathered at the intersection of Endicott and N. Margin Streets to see the statue of Saint Anthony return home. After 10 hours, the carriers have endured a grueling, but inspiring procession through the streets of the North End. There were 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. Still to come is the transition to the St. Lucy Feast. See more coverage of St. Anthony’s Feast.
(Thank you to the neighbors that helped me with window and roof access at various points during the procession. It was much appreciated.)
