Man Selling Goods at the Festival

It is common practice for members of the Italian community to sell their wares along Mayfield Road during the festival. This became more common as more people began attending the festival in later years. After the 1970s, when the racial tensions in the nation started to wane, an increased number of people who were neither Italian nor Catholic also started to show up for the festival.
