Don’t miss this beloved Festa Italiana tradition!

Beginning on the North end of the grounds, Festa Italiana’s enchanting parade will wind its way through the festival Saturday and Sunday evening at 5 p.m. Led by Pinocchio, Geppetto, the Blue Fairy and Topo Gigio, the beloved parade celebrates the music, culture and spirit of Italy – plus many surprises along the way! We will share more exciting parade details as we get closer to Festa!


Calling all children! We are looking for children to walk in the parade wearing feathered Carnevale masks supplied by the Italian Community Center. Not only do we invite all children to march in the Grand Parade wearing either an Italian costume or a clown costume, but we also will continue the tradition for the opportunity for children to wear masks. You provide the children, we will provide masks for them to wear!


If you are interested in pushing a float, please contact me for further information.


If you are interested in donating to the parade to help cover the costs of rental equipment, candy or trinkets for the children, please contact Gina Jorgensen or see the parade wish list.


If you are interested in participating in this year’s Festa parade in any capacity, please contact Gina Jorgensen at 414-380-0808 or


Grazie Mille!
