Join the throngs of people who’ll be flocking to the North End this weekend to celebrate St. Anthony’s Feast. For more than 100 years, the traditionally Italian neighborhood has held this annual celebration full of vibrant fanfare and fun. Though religious in origin (services and a lively procession honoring the patron saint remain a major component to this day), this festival also offers plenty of secular entertainment in the form of live music, street vendors and all of the food. It’s free to attend, which means that you can instead spend all of your money stocking up on customary snacks, like arancini and cannoli, and then downing them on the sidewalk as devotees rush to pin cash to the statue.
