Neighborhood restaurants, set up in front of their usual places of business, and other specialty vendors, offering traditional Italian food fare, will line Mayfield Road. In addition, restaurants will have their patio areas open with beer, wine, spirits and available seating.

Stands benefiting the Church are located on the grounds of Holy Rosary and offer a complete family experience. Offerings and activities include carnival rides and children’s games, Italian foods and desserts, live music, beer and wine, and a casino in the lower level of the church.
