Sonja and Mark DeJacimo say they have enjoyed attending the Italian Festival in McAlester since its beginnings. “We’ve always experienced the Italian Festival ever since it started,” Mark DeJacimo said. He’s looked forward to seeing who’s been selected as the Festival Re and Regina each year. 

“You’d see people you know,” he said. This year though, the DeJacimos can see the festival royalty by looking into a mirror.
