Here are a few tips to help you enjoy your time at the Festival Italiano:

  • Check out the event schedule before you go, so that you will be able to enjoy the many activities and performances planned throughout the day.
  • Park in the parking garages on Vance St. between Alameda and Alaska or on S. Saulsbury St. between Alaska and Virginia.
  • It would be better to leave your dogs at home for their own safety. The street gets hot on their paws and it can get overwhelming.
  • If you are from out of town and need a place to stay, the Holiday Inn Lakewood has been newly remodeled and provides free shuttle service for guests.

Hope to see you there, and have a great weekend!

About MarissaL

I'm Marissa. I'm a graduate from The Art Institute of Colorado with a bachelor's in fashion design. I started my career with FCF during my externship course at AIC, I have continued to stay with the company after graduation. What I love about FCF is how we get to attend event and cover local fashion shows. The team of FCF has grown tremendously and we have a great mentor to help us along the way. I'm very excited because we are currently planning our own fashion show/event!!! Currently I'm writing celebrity articles, covering the newest news and gossip in Hollywood. I would love to hear reviews and comments on the articles I write. Fashion is not just what you wear, but it is within your lifestyle. There is more to fashion than what name you have on. Fashion is in the air we breath and the images we see. If there is anything you would like to hear more about, let me know. Thank you for visiting my profile on First Class Fashionista!!!
