August 15th: "The Feast"

Cleveland - Little Italy an urban neighborhood with fine restaurants, galleries, and specialty stores--This sure has been a jam-packed summer, and we almost blew by "The Feast." Today's the last day. Here's the text from the site:
Feast of the Assumption August 12, 13, 14, & 15 - We look forward to seeing you! The Feast of the Assumption officially begins at noon Saturday. There are rides for kids in the churchyard, entertainment throughout the day, and lots to eat at various stands on Mayfield Rd. Most of the shops will be open extended hours, so this is a fine time to visit Little Italy. The schedule of events will be repeated on Sunday. On Monday the opening time is 6 pm for the church festivities but shops will be open at noon. Tuesday is the big day to celebrate the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin. It starts with mass at 10 am followed by a procession, it has been a religious tribute for 108 years, continuing into the night and ending about 11pm with fireworks.
