Ask any Bostonian about the North End and it is likely they’ll mention the festivals, or ‘feasts,’ organized each summer. These events are designed to honor patron saints of various regions throughout Italy and have brought hundreds of thousands to the area for almost a century! Here is an old photo of a festival on Hanover Street circa 1930.
The festivals have certainly become a neighborhood tradition that isn’t going away anytime soon! See our coverage from the last feast season.
