SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) - The tastes and sounds of Italy were floating around the south
end of Springfield Saturday at the weekend-long 112th annual
The feast is held on Winthrop Street at the Mount Carmel Society.
One of the hottest items this year was the marinara sauce drenched fried dough, watermelon and meatball grinders. "Love the atmosphere and the food is great. i enjoy listening to dj roccos music a lot," said Tess Perrotta of South Hadley.
The Italian feast will continue throughout the day Sunday and, as in years past, will be highlighted by a ceremonial procession of the Madonna.
