NAUGATUCK — Thousands of people turned out for the Naugatuck Portuguese Club’s 60th annual Festas de Sao Paio celebration Saturday, but no one received as much attention as Maria Fidalgo, who was honored as Mayor for the Day.
“The town has been running much more efficiently,” Mayor Robert A. Mezzo joked. He was joined by other politicians who said she’s a shining example of Portuguese immigrants’ contributions to the town. Naugatuck has one of the densest Portuguese populations of any part of the state.
