St. Anthony’s Draws Thousands
Thousands turned out to enjoy the religious celebration, entertainment and delicious food at the annual St. Anthony's of Padua Feast Days. The three-day event is held on the parish grounds at 300 Odell Avenue in Endicott.
The Feast Days honors St. Anthony of Padua and is an extra special celebration this year as the church celebrates its 100th anniversary. The Feast Days began Friday night, continued on Saturday and then wrapped-up on Sunday afternoon. Following mass on Sunday morning the church led a procession through the streets of Endicott's Northside.
There was musical entertainment throughout the Feast Days and great food. On Sunday visitors got to enjoy a variety of pasta dishes under the big tent and a chicken barbeque just across the street.
Dozens of volunteers and warm, dry weather helped make the weekend a huge success. Money raised from Feast Days goes to help fund various church and charitable projects.
