Buona festa!

St. Mary’s Feast returns this week, a year after the pandemic forced the 2020 edition of the summer staple in Knightsville to significantly scale back. These images, courtesy of the St. Mary’s Feast Society, show preparations being made in the days leading up to the annual festival.

A kickoff event was scheduled for Wednesday night, followed by additional festivities through July 18. The feast’s fireworks display is scheduled for the final night at 10 o’clock.

The route of this year’s Patronal Procession, which begins after the 10 a.m. service on Sunday, July, 18, has been slightly adjusted due a decline in the numbers of the faithful gathered along the Florida Avenue section of the route.

“We realize that this will cause sadness for those very few faithful left along the route, but we kindly ask you to understand the need for this change,” the St. Mary’s Feast Society said in an statement.

The revised route will depart from St. Mary’s Church and follow Cranston Street to Vervena Street. It will then turn right onto Vervena Street to C Street, where it will turn right and continue to Phenix Avenue. From Phenix, the route will head to Green Avenue, then onto Randall Street and back onto Cranston Street, ending at St. Mary’s Church.
