The Regina Margherita di Savoia Mixed Lodge #1094 of the Order Sons of Italy in America will again host an ITALIAN FESTA on the Waltham Common. In addition to showcasing Italian heritage, the FESTA subsidizes the Lodge’s Scholarship Fund from which annual awards are presented to deserving high-school seniors in Waltham and other Massachusetts communities based on scholastic excellence, community service, extra-curricular activities and in some instances, Italian heritage and/or proficiency in the Italian language.
There will again be rides for all ages (a number of new ones will be added), games, music, dancing, concessions and fun for the whole family. Free entertainment will be provided to the FESTA-goers for the entire day. This year’s line-up of entertainers promises to be spectacular with performances byDJ Ross Zagami, Amici della Musica Italiana, the Northeast Drum and Bugle Corps, winners from the Waltham Boys and Girls “Idol” competition, the Senior Tones, Chefs Dino and Sonia Parravano and “Elvis” and “The Little Bopper”,to name a few.
Please note Rain Date will be June 5, 2016.
