BUFFALO, NY ( WKBW ) Ilio DiPaolo is legendary in Western New York, not only for the restaurant he started in Blasdell, but also for his wrestling prowess.

The DiPaolo family are carrying on the traditions established by their late father at their southtowns business, and in supporting community events.

Dennis DiPaolo talked about the celebration of Italian heritage that you can enjoy at the Sorrento Cheese Italian Heritage Festival.

Sunday is the final day for the event, featuring food - rides - and fun, on Hertel Avenue between Delaware and Colvin in North Buffalo.
