When: June 14-15, 5-11 p.m. 2013
It's back! After a year off, the Italian Street Festival returns with a special guest (Food Network host Rosella Rago), a race (the inaugural 5K Meatball Madness Fun Run), a bocce tournament, 25 food stands — and, of course, an afternoon mass on both Fri and Sat (4:30 p.m.), preceded by a religious procession headed up by the Virgin herself. Holy Rosary Catholic Church is on the corner of East and Stevens streets, six blocks south of downtown. Parking is available in the Eli Lilly Lots on East and New Jersey streets.
