Mangia this weekend at Festa Italiana!

Want to indulge with a capital "I" this weekend? What better way than at the Sacramento Italian Cultural Society's Festa Italiana! Now in its 28th year, the two day festival celebrates the Capital City's Italian community with music, dancing, shopping, and of course, the country's deliciously rich cuisine. (Why not stuff your face with a cannoli... or two...or five.)

Not Italian? Not to worry. You don't have to be to enjoy the festival's fanfare. There is a little something for everyone. For only $12 (or free if you're under age 15), attendees can enjoy a lively Italian Marketplace, children's games and rides, bocce ball, an Italian cars and motorcycles show, and a number of musical and dance performances, including a special appearance by Dean Martin impersonator, Matt Helm.
