It wouldn’t be August in North Hyde Park without the smell of zeppoles and pizza beneath a bright fireworks display. The Cellini Lodge Italian Festival is back beginning Aug. 22 for five evenings of food, music and rides in Tully Park. Cellini Lodge No. 2206, the local lodge of the Order Sons and Daughters of Italy, hosts the annual event.

Live music will include both Italian acts and popular American tunes. There will be rides for all ages, including a Ferris wheel and carnival games. Adults can enjoy a wine booth (with a “mean sangria,” notes chapter president Mark Ventimiglia) and a gambling tent. A variety of food will be available for sale, including pasta and zeppoles – an Italian pastry made of fried dough – that chapter members prepare by hand.
