Cool Weather and Bright Skies Bring Crowds to Festa Italiana

It was smiles all around during the 41st Annual Festa Italiana on Saturday, with cooler temps, Italian beer tastings and wine samples, plus the usual spectator sports: grape stomp and pasta eating contests and a Bocce tournament. High school artists showed their stuff during the 13th Annual I Madonnari sidewalk art contest, and there was live music from '60s rockers The Fab 5 and Elvis tribute artist Vince King. There's still one more day of fun on Sunday, so come experience authentic Italian culture and all your favorite festival foods: meatball sandwiches, pasta, pizza, cannoli, sausage on a stick, chicken Marsala and more.
