Make way for Festa Italiana

The annual Festa Italiana takes place this weekend. It's a chance to experience that country's culture and food. Organizer Benny Melchiorre says the popularity of the event is evidenced by the number of people who attend. He says the first year attracted about 4 thousand people and now they're expecting close to 20 thousand to attend. Festa Italiana happens Sunday and Monday at the Italian Cultural Centre on Algoma.
