2015-08 | Fisherman's Feast Flight of the Angel & Procession
The Fisherman’s Feast is the North End’s oldest continuously running Italian festival and one of the largest with four days of festivities on North, Lewis and Fleet Streets. The tradition goes back to the 16th century in Sciacca, Sicily brought to Boston in 1910 based on the devotion of the fishermen to the Madonna del Soccorso (Our Lady of Help). Organizers and most members are the descendants of the original Sicilian immigrants.
Devotions, music and confetti were all part of the Sunday Procession at the 104th Fisherman’s Feast, in honor of the Madonna del Soccorso di Sciacca.
