"Feast St. Anthony"

St. Anthony's Feast Day is June 13th. Each year at our church, Our Lady of Peace His statue would be brought out from the church and a procession would take place through the streets. Ribbons were hung from the statue. People would  contribute dollar bills to be pinned to the ribbons. A band would play Italian music as the procession continued through the neighborhood. When the statue went back to the church you could hardly see the statue through all the money  At  night the feast would continue for days. It was a combination of great food, good music, and much fun.
