Just two years before its centennial anniversary, the 98th St. Anthony’s Feast was held last weekend in Boston’s North End. Hundreds of thousands came to visit the feast, culminating in the grand finale procession on Sunday where St. Anthony’s Club members carried the saint for over 10 hours making hundreds of stops in the North End. Several bands were on hand during the day to bring traditional Italian feast music to the celebration. Here are some photos from Sunday’s procession. The “Feast of all Feasts” is organized by San Antonio di Padova da Montefalcione, Inc., also known as the St. Anthony’s Club.
