Italian Festival Returns by Alex Bieler
St. Paul's Italian Festival

Mangia, mangia! The Italian Festival returns to St. Paul Catholic Church, providing Erie with plenty of food, entertainment, and history from “the boot.”

The three-day event has a little bit of everything for families, from live music to the procession of a statue of the Virgin Mary through Little Italy. And of course, there’s always the food. At the Italian Fest, you can try a variety of cuisines, dining on delicious dishes ranging from pasta fagioli to cannolis. If you’re still feeling a little puckish, perhaps the spaghetti-eating contest is for you.  – Alex Bieler
