Federal Hill was bustling with people celebrating Italian culture and getting their zeppole fix on St. Joseph’s Day.
The Italian pastry is a holiday staple across Southern New England.
Customers lined up at Scialo Brothers Bakery, where staff was busy making multiple different kinds.
“We are getting up to a couple of thousand right now,” said staff member Olivia DeAngelis.
Those in line told it’s a long-standing traditon.
“My parents are from Italy, so we, my husband I, are bringing them to enjoy the day,” said Lisa Franciosa.
Rick Simone, President of the Federal Hill Commerce Association, says around 8,000 people were expected to visit Federal Hill on St. Joseph’s Day this year.
“It falls on a Sunday this year, which is nice for us because Sundays are usually the quieter days up here on Federal Hill, so the economic impact is great because people are having lunch, they are having dinner, they are shopping in the market places, they are going into the bakeries for the zeppole, so it’s a lot more economic impact than it has been in years past,” Simone said.
Those serving up sweets and smiles said they are glad to be doing it.
“Some of our heritage is starting to die down a little bit, but I am an old soul, and the Italian culture means everything to me and I will carry on all these traditions as long as I possibly can,” DeAngelis said.
