Haha. I love how there are tons of $1s, and then one each of $5 and $10. =P Why are all the people going for the $1s? lol

Wow - good eyes! Maybe the $10 guy didn't have enough pins? :D With $1 bills, you can definately get a better deal if the goal is to cover the statue in money ;) Don't know though, I just visited :)

Well, as far as I know (it was my first visit to Boston) it was the St. Anthony's Day with a parade of the saint's statue through the streets of "Little Italy" There were tons of people, music, Italian food, the whole thing :D All of the donations go to charities :)

Statue-type thing of, apparently St. Anthony, whose robes have many long strips of cloth for which people to pin their donations to? That's my guess.

Wow, very "what the"!! I think the funniest thing about this is the "street cleaning" sign behind the huge money blob thing... Even though it probably has nothing to do with the picture... ^^;
