Once again we will be closing Morris Avenue from Third to Fourth to turn the space into an Italian village. There will be live music with Julian & Dominique , Italian food provided by our member restaurants with a wine and beer garden to give us the al fresco food court that our visitors have come to love.
We are having Face Painting and Balloon Twisting and for the first time at the Italian Festival, a Petting Zoo –it was a big hit at the Irish Festival! The Spaghetti Eating Contest, a crowd favorite, will be back as well. New to the Italian Festival will be the Spring Lake School of Dance performing Italian folk dances – a tremendous draw for families and friends. Not new, but always a draw, is the festival Art Walk that will take place along Third Avenue. There will be music on Third too!
