italian festivalAnother one of my favorite festivals!  After all of these food festivals - I will need to get back on my diet!

June 8 - 15, 2014, the premier week-long St. Anthony's Italian Festival celebrating the many facets of Italian culture, music and food. Each year the Festival highlights a region of Italy and the cuisine and culture of that locale. This celebration is one of the largest of its kind on the East Coast.

This year, the festival will focus on the Ascoli Piceno region in the Le Marche province.  Many Italian-American families in the Wilmington area hail from this region.

Experience some authentic Italian food specialties in one of the many outdoor eateries.  And there is music and fun for all ages.  Check out the huge midway and "Kiddie Land" with the best rides and games for the entire family.  I will admit - I have not been on the rides.

Come and check it out - you will love.
