The Society of St. Sebastian’s feast and carnival returned to Montclair last week, continuing a tradition that’s been going on for nearly a century. The society celebrated its “95th Anniversary Feast,” after last year’s carnival was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic (but the procession continued).

Visitors came to the festival, near Kaveny Field along Walnut and Christopher Streets, from Wednesday, Aug. 25 through Sunday, Aug. 29 — with the traditional Mass in honor of St. Sebastian at Our Lady Of Mount Carmel Church followed by a procession through the streets of Montclair on the final day. St. Sebastian is honored as the patron saint of soldiers, and defender against plagues and disease.
