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! 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 present a new, fun opportunity for children to participate this year. You provide the children, we will provide the masks. We are looking for 20 children to walk in the parade, wearing feathered Carnevale masks supplied by the ICC.
We are in need of someone to pull the Pinocchio mobile with a car or truck with a 2 inch ball. If you are interested is pushing any of the small floats, please contact Gina Jorgensen.
If you are interested in participating in this year’s Festa parade in any capacity, please contact Gina Jorgensen at 414-380-0808.
