For the past decade, the annual Italian Festival sponsored by the Colonial Italian American Organization has raised money to help local students pay for college. Some $200,000 has been raised to underwrite scholarships and and other education-related grants.

This year's event will be held this weekend, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Oct. 12-13 on the grounds of Walsingham Academy.

There are also several chances to purchase food from restaurants specializing in delicious Italian fare.
