Feast of the Assumption

When: Fri., Aug. 12 2011

Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary has hosted the weekend-long Feast of the Assumption for 112 years That's a lot of Assumptions. Still, number 113 kicks off today with a time-tested blend of solemn religious observance and partying down in the streets of Little Italy. The festivities — including bands, carnival rides, arts and crafts vendors, and, of course, more pizza, pasta, and pignoli cookies than you can shake a pepperoni stick at — kick off today at 6 p.m. and conclude on Monday night with a candlelight processional and fireworks. Recent feasts have drawn more than 100,000 people to Mayfield Road; needless to say, the street is closed to traffic for the duration. Admission is free, but bring along molto moolah for all the tempting eats. A complete schedule of events can be found on the church's website. — Kerrigan 12021 Mayfield Rd., 216-421-2995, holy-rosary.org
