St. Anthony's Feast Elmont, LI 2010

Posted on June 17, 2010

Well another St. Anthony Feast has come and gone.  What a great time we had this year.  I have never seen a greater procession than the one that goes on here.  The neighbors come out of there house and set up tables with water, refreshments, cut pieces of fruit, etc for all the pilgrims.  The elderly that can't leave their houses are brought bags of St. Anthony's bread by the younger people.  It gives you a good feeling no matter what religion you are.  It shows me that there is still a lot of hope and a lot of wonderful people in this world.  I am also thankful to my friend Marcantonio who runs the entertainment there.  He is a wonderful person, entertainer and friend.  I also have to thank Tony and Anna Gatto for being so hospitable when Im there.  I hope to see you guys out there next year!  Best, Aaron
