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 it-am.org
