Several local outdoor events that will draw large crowds have been canceled again this year, but the Saint Michael Parish Feast on Essex Street will be back with entertainment, food stalls, games and their famous malassadas.

The festival will take place earlier than normal this year and will run from July 16-18.

In addition to food, games and entertainment from 5pm to 10pm, Marc Dennis will perform on Friday, July 16th at 7.30pm

The same goes for Saturday July 17th, except that Portuguese / dance singer Nadia will take the stage.

On Sunday, the bilingual festival mass at 9.30 a.m. is followed by a traditional procession of the St. Michael statue from 1 p.m. (normal processional route).

There is food and fun on Sunday from 3 pm to 8 pm with Banda Santa Cecilia & Alta Ego.
