Nearly a million people gather to partake in Boston's annual feasts and festivals. In August, crowds gather to watch Bostonians celebrate the Feast of St. Anthony. Townspeople, dressed in white clothing, huddle together to carry a large statue of St. Anthony through the streets of Boston's North End. The statue is adorned with ribbons, and as it's passed through the crowded street, locals pin money to the ribbons.
