Italian Day 2015 – And It’s a Wrap

Sunday, June 14 2015

Today was a grand blessing as I started with a double Cappuccino — the best — followed by amazing Biscotti, and probably 6 litres of water throughout my 9 hour visit. The Lasagna, the music on stages, and especially one performance, were absolutely memorable! Thank you everyone involved for the good time, new friends and added memories. God bless all of you. Amen! What a day!’

Our friends back East

Thank you to our friends TLN who flew in from Toronto and attended this year’s event. What impressed them most was the vibrancy and community involvement of the street festival, along with the natural beauty of this city. They considered the volume of attendees to be the largest in Canada as an Italian themed one day street event. This video below aired nationally on TLN and can also be found on their website.

Thank you to all our sponsors and community support without whom this event would not be possible! The most amazing Italian Day yet!

See you next year!

A la prossima!
