"You don't have to go to the North End to have an Italian festival"

On Monday, some of the St. Rocco's army of volunteers completed the task of setting up the food tents on the fairgrounds behind St. Mary’s school on the corner of Pleasant and Queen Streets. The site is caddy corner from St. Mary's Church at 1 Church Square on one side of the Franklin Town Common. 
This year's celebration, hosted by St. Mary's Parish, begins on Aug. 9 with the opening Mass. Carnival rides start on Thursday, Aug. 13; food booths and entertainment will be featured Friday, Aug. 14 through Sunday, Aug. 16. 
"The booths are all up, so that's done. Now we need to get the electricians in there," said Peter Brunelli, one of the St. Rocco's patriarchs who has been involved with the event for many years as a co-chairman of the St. Rocco's Feast Committee.
