Four days a row, I did some gigs at the North End for the feasts of Saint Anthony and Saint Lucy, with the Roma Band and the Abruzzi band (secretly New Magnolia in disguise). Both feasts have been going around for like century...
Amazing to be a part of the traditions, seeing the veneration of the saints and people pinning money to it (and getting a little band number in thanks.) But also very grueling - some of the walkabouts were like 5-6 hours.
