The annual St. Peter’s Italian Street Festival  event kicked off again with a four mile race hosted by the Maine Track Club.  The race began at 7:00 p.m. after a warm day, and started to cool off as the last runner passed the half way mark on North Street.  The race began on India Steet and followed a scenic course, some of it along the Eastern Promenade, before returning to India Street.
