Many, many years ago while walking around Boston's North End with my father he said, "I smell a feast". I thought he was a little crazy, how can you smell a feast? But as we kept walking, I too could smell the feast. The zeppole, the sausage. As we turned a corner we saw the festival lights, the stands and the band setting up. You could feel the excitement in the air. He was right, you can smell a feast!
This Thursday, August 13, 2016 we'll be part of that excitement as we open up for the first day of the Fisherman's Feast. If you've never been there before, it's a wonderful, annual event that started in 1910 to honor the dedication of the fisherman from Sciacca, Italy to Madonna. The highlight of the feast is the "Flight of the Angel". From the Fisherman's Feast site, "As the society members bring the Madonna statue home to North Street, two side angels on balconies recite an Italian devotion followed by the entrance of the flying angel from a third story window coming down to the street to meet the Madonna Del Soccorso Di Sciacca. At the end, confetti rains on the scene in an astounding street celebration." It's truly a sight to see! So come join us. Eat some sausage sandwiches, then head over and pick up some torrone, biscotti, andrite and more! August 13th-16th. More info http://www.fishermansfeast.com/schedule.html
