A final collection of images from last week’s St. Anthony’s Feast
My wife had some things to do in Boston’s Back Bay on Friday, so I wandered down to Copley Square with my camera. These young men from New York City were entertaining the crowd with a bit of break dancing and acrobatics. They put on a good show. Enjoy!
Each August the Southeast Asian community in Lowell holds a water festival in a park along the river. Part fair and part competition, you can learn about Southeast Asian culture, eat some wonderful food and watch the boat races. Here are a few photos from yesterday.
These are some scenes from the musical part of the Lowell Folk Festival. Unfortunately, photos do not convey the music well, but as you can see, it is an international affair. My favorites were George (Super Chikan) Johnson and his band The Fighting Cocks, and the group Bassekou Kouyate and Ngoni Ba. We heard many more bands than the ones you see here, but this will give you a flavor of what we experienced.
A parade led by the Original Pinettes Brass Band begins this year’s Lowell Folk Festival in Lowell, Massachusetts. (Lowell is about 30 minutes north of Boston.)
