CLEVELAND — The Feast of the Assumption began in Little Italy Thursday morning with a solemn mass at Holy Rosary Church.

On this holy day of obligation, Catholics show their strong devotion to The Blessed Virgin Mary and her assumption into heaven.

A procession, which is an extension of prayer during the Mass, began at the church and continued through the entire Little Italy neighborhood before concluding at the church.

Then, the five-block festival kicked off. It includes live music, lots of great food and carnival rides.

The festivities end Sunday night.
