Just like most cities across the USA, our city held it’s annual Italian Festival this weekend. As the weather has become more bearable, Wilma and I decided that this afternoon would be a great time to go to the festival. (Arrow over the photo’s)
No matter who is hosting the Festivals, be it Italian, Ireland, Poland, or Native American, you can always expect their finest foods. And this Festival lived up to that.
We walked from one end of the Festival to the other, taking in all the sites and smells. As we were both hungry, it was tempting to stop at each vendor and purchase their special dishes.
From Turkey legs, Ribs, Pizza, or dishes I didn’t recognize, we had a large assortment to choose from.
But it was the smoke from these ribs that won us over. Another local restaurant, Smokin' BarBQ was our choice. It might not be an “Italian” dish, but we love our BarBQ ribs!
They were “fall off the bone” delicious! The corn being grilled was not my favorite, but it added to our dinner.
Heading out we passed IL Fornaio Bakery.
After watching how a “Spingi” is prepared, curiosity got the best of me and I just had to try one.
Of course Wilma had to give it a try also and take a small bite out of it. Delicious covered in sugar and cinnamon. They had many other items tempting your sweet tooth, but we prevailed and had to walk away.
Wilma and I really enjoyed our time at the Italian Festival today, and look forward to many other Festivals hosted by our city.
Until next time, be safe and God Bless.
