St. Anthony’s Feast

18 Sep

There is a little piece of Boston that I love, it’s called the North End. Is it because of the 100+ restaurants within a very small space? Yes. Is it because of the canollies or the late night bakeries (Bovas)? Yes.  Is it because it’s a short walk from my house to get some of the best pasta and seafood ever? Yes.

But a few weekends ago was something I had never experienced in my four years of living in Boston. Stud Muffin and I decided to check out St. Anthony’s Feast and I am so glad we did. From Friday to Sunday, three streets in the North End are shut down and vendors line the streets – these consist of food vendors, carnival games and people selling Italian-themed products.

We went for the food…

Buffalo Chicken Calzone from Bovas

Arancini!

SPICY

We happened upon this…

After all was said and done, we were full, but happy as clams!

We highly recommend checking out the festivals next August, you won’t be disappointed.
