Well, Well, Well, the Italian Festival Will Be Here Before You Know It

10 posts in this topic

The Wilmington, Delaware Italian Festival will be here in 30 days or so! Here's a few links to those close by that may want to come.

This is my church - It's like Sapranos here in real life!

Culture...it'll do you some good! :lol:

P-C-S, are you going to be stomping some grapes to the rhythm of "La Tarantella" in the background? You notice when anybody spoofs Italians, they play "La Tarantella" in the background.

I tend to like Italian and Greek Festivals. I have worked, as a volunteer, at Festa Italiana in Sacramento. The Italian Festival in SF, generally near Columbus Day, is huge and too commercial...it's at one of the piers. The one in Reno is lame in that it is put on by the Eldorado Hotel and NOT the Italian community itself.

Greek Festivals are always put on by their churches. With everything a la carte, you wind up spending too much for the quality...but, whatever, you can hang out with "Nick and Christina" for an afternoon.

I'm not sure I want to see what kind of "culture" is growing in Custom-S' thong, Bobby. Why do you think I posted this: :huh: ? You miss the point of so many things. <_<

You should still attend an Italian festival or two in your life, though.

I went to a German Festival once in Baltimore with a friend of mine. We ate bratwurst and saw a lot of old guys in liederhosen.

Are you sure that was Bratwurst you two were eating? :AH-HA_wink:

Italian festivals are fun... I haven't been to one in a while, but when I lived in Ohio I regularly went to the Ohio Valley Italian Festival (Steubenville, Ohio) and the Wheeling (WV) Italian Festival.

the Ohio Valley Italian Festival (Steubenville, Ohio) and the Wheeling (WV) Italian Festival.

Yup, most of the eastern OH, WV and western PA Italians I know of have roots in the mining industry whereas most of the Central Valley of Calif. Italians have roots in farming (as do the Portuguese and the high concentration of Armenians around Fresno) for the most part.

Sadly, these traditions will erode when immigrants and first-generation types are no more. :(
