St. Anthony of Padua festival returns to West Harrison after pandemic hiatus
After a three-year absence forced by the COVID-19 pandemic, the annual St. Anthony of Padua Church's festival was back this year to the delight of crowds in West Harrison.
The 54th annual St. Anthony of Padua Festa Italiana featured music, attractions, games and a variety of foods for families to enjoy.
Thousands were on hand for the second day of the three-day festival on Saturday.
Although they numbered in the thousands, there was a spirit of comradery in the crowd and that feeling that everyone is a neighbor.
Festa Italiana runs through Sunday 10 p.m.
