For its grand finale, the statue of Sant’ Antonio was met with the usual confetti guns, but also a heavy rain downpour. The storm largely cleared feast visitors from the street leaving dedicated society members to carry the money-filled statue back to its home on Endicott Street.
Shown above, St. Anthony’s Club members pose for a group photo before the final leg of the Grand Procession in the pouring rain. At the bandstand, shown below, colored confetti showers devotees amid the wet streets as the donation-covered statue of St. Anthony arrives home.
Earlier in the day, Boston Mayor Marty Walsh pinned a donation on the statue of Saint Anthony, shown below.
