Feast Days in the North End

Every weekend in August, revelers carry statues of Catholic Saints through the narrow streets of Boston's North End. These feast days remain a robust summer tradition in an Italian neighborhood slowly being changed by gentrification.

In today's installment in our occasional series of summer postcards, we check in on the recent feast of Saint Joseph, or San Giuseppe.

Our piece on the celebration of San Giuseppe was produced by WBUR's Kezia Simister. For information about more festivals in the North End this Summer, click on the link below.
