Subject: [AZORES-L] contraversy over Holy Ghost feast in Fall River
Date: Wed, 28 May 2003 23:02:43 +0000
Last night the City Council of Fall River decided not to ban the holding of
the Holy Ghost feast in August due to the SARS scare. One of the members of
the city council, Leo Pelletier, had proposed cancelling the feast because
many people from Toronto come to celebrate the festival. The festival
organizers vehemently opposed this as anti-Portuguese. The feast will go on
with some minor adjustments for those fearful of SARS.
