Feast of Saint Anthony Boston!
The 102nd year Anniversary of the Feast of Saint Anthony in Boston's North End is an annual tradition for us at LastRitesShop! An Italian Saints Day celebration traces its roots to Montefalcione in the Province of Avellino in Campania, Italy. When the Italians in this small village of Italy immigrated to America in the early 1900's they wanted to carry on this celebration of Saint Anthony of Padua, their patron Saint. The descendants of these families still live in the North End and now this tradition has become a huge four day party filled with live music, street food, and Italian fashion! We wouldn't miss it for the world!
