Feast of Saint Anthony returns to Bridgeport for 1st time since 2020

One of Bridgeport’s most popular festivals returned Friday at the St. Margaret Shrine Parish.
The Feast of Saint Anthony has been called the hidden gem of Bridgeport for years and that's because of its large variety of Italian food. 
This is the first year back since the pandemic hit in 2020.
Saint Anthony's Feast brings out thousands of people, with an average of about 10,000 people.
Aside from the enormous selection of Italian food, like the famous pizza fritta, there are several rides and games.
Organizers say they're excited to welcome everyone back.
The festival will continue throughout the entire weekend.
