Drinks include Italian and domestic beers & a craft beer, wine, soda, juice boxes and water. Entertainment and music will be provided Vince Amore and Jack Miuccio from upstate.

We will again have our Regalia Gift Shop with all kinds of Italian shirts, hats, pins, Italian novelties and aprons. There will be Bocce tournaments, and an arts and craft village. Other events and attractions will include scholarship awards, an inflatable attraction, a face painter, and various other games. Kids Corner open from 12:30pm to 4:00pm.
