71st Italian American Fest begins tomorrow!

Written by
Growing up in an Italian family meant lots of relatives. There were two huge events every year. The Biasella reunion (my Grandfathers namesakes), and the Italian Festival. When I was young, the festival was held at Playland Park 9Long gone).Everyone brought there own homemade Italian food and it was more or less a huge picnic. Now, It has split in to two festivals, the first of which is at Lock 3 beginning tomorrow. There was a falling out between those that ran the festival, good or bad, the second is later this month in Cuyahoga Falls. It runs July 19-21st...Take your pick or attend both..For info on the Italain - American Fest at Lock 3 go to For the second festival lineup go to And mangia!!
