There was something for everyone at the annual Saint Rocco’s Church Feast and Festival, a timeless tradition that completed its seven-day stay Sunday in Johnston. For Anna DeRobbio, 88, of Cranston, it was an opportunity to break bread with her friend Etta Branca, 90, and enjoy a sandwich featuring a freshly made roll from The Original Italian Bakery under the “Big Top.”

Patrons also had the chance to purchase raffle tickets for a chance to win a two-year lease on a 2019 Lincoln MKC or one of two cash prizes.
