The rain Saturday didn’t keep people way from St. Paul’s Italian Festival.
Little Italy is rocking once again with entertainment, activities for the family and of course great Italian food.
Organizers call the Italian Festival a reunion for many people, including one man who volunteered at the festival for many years.
Joe Cuzzola says this is one of his first years not volunteering, but he still brought out the entire family to the tradition that’s been around since he was a kid.
Cuzzola says, “It keeps the parish thriving. It takes care of a lot of financial obligations that the parish has to stay open. So it’s a wonderful purpose to keep this as the foundation of Little Italy.”
