Saturday was the icing on the cake of four warm, clear August nights for the St. Roch Feast.

The air was punctuated with smells of sausage, peppers, and pizza fritta as friends and neighbors swarmed across Hamilton Ave and dispersed to the beer and wine garden, games of luck and skill, and the food court at the school that bears its name.

As per tradition there was live music every night, as well as rides, games and abundant sweets and treats for kids of all ages.
