This year is the 100th Anniversary of the Saint Agrippina’s Feast, scheduled for July 31st through August 3rd in Boston’s North End.

Each year this group of devoted people come together to renew their faith in Saint Agrippina in Boston’s North End, as was the custom in the land of origin, Mineo, Sicily. The members of the Saint Agrippina di Mineo Benefit Society would like to welcome you, your friends and families to come celebrate the 100th anniversary of this great tradition. Come and see the procession, eat some food, play some games and listen to the music. We hope to see you there – VIVA SAINT AGRIPPINA!!! For more information and updates, see their Facebook page.
At 13:50 in the video, see the annual “Tug of War” between the front and rear carriers (the rear won, again). Concluding the feast is the celebratory “Dance of 20 Men” and “VIVA” fireworks display on Hanover Street.
