It’s August and the North End neighborhood of Boston will celebrate one of its four annual feasts each weekend. This is a time-honored tradition for families and individuals from Boston – and visitors from all over the world – that has endured for more than 100 years. The city welcomes all who come to enjoy these events. The Boston Police Department does want to remind attendees, and those visiting the neighborhood, that there is zero tolerance of underage drinking and public drinking. We are asking adults to remind young members of their families of this and to supervise their behavior. Any interference with a permitted event, such as the feasts, is unacceptable and police will take notice. We want attendees of all ages – and those who work at and organize these wonderful events – to feel and be safe to enjoy the food, music and sense of community they offer.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. We welcome your support in making these and all family friendly events in our city as safe and fun as possible!
