Photos: Fun at Festa Italiana

Festa Italiana, Rockford’s second-largest festival, offered food, fun, live music and games on the grounds of Boylan Catholic High School Friday-Sunday, Aug. 5-7. Despite having to dodge a few raindrops, festival-goers still enjoyed a full weekend of entertainment. Festa Italiana is a subcommittee of the Greater Rockford Italian American Association (GRIAA) and is the largest contributor to GRIAA’s scholarship fund. GRIAA’s scholarship fund helps Italian descendants with tuition in parochial schools. To date, GRIAA has awarded approximately half-a-million dollars in scholarships.
