Organizers of Abbeville’s Sicilian Festival are excited following a successful first year. The free cultural celebration was held Saturday at the Sam Guarino Blacksmith Shop Museum. Seven teams participating in the cook-off prepared Sicilian/Italian meals. Beverages, muffalettas, pizza, and ice cream were also sold.

Live music entertained the crowd. The first place winner of the cook-off was pleasantly surprised by the turnout. “This was the first Sicilian Festival.
