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!
