Friday was day two of the second largest Italian street festival in the nation where hundreds of thousands will taste and see the best of Italy along Hertel Avenue and experience the rich history and culture of the old country.
"We have expanded our cultural heritage section to the heritage corridor which includes grape stomping and Sicilian puppet shows," said Peter LoJacono the Heritage Director of the festival.
The festival was traditionally held in July but was pushed to the first week of August this year. The new calendar date didn't seem to affect the crowd because while the date changed their festival favorites didn't.
The festival continues Saturday from 11 am to 11pm and Sunday 11am to 10pm.
