That is why Venice, Viareggio, Cento and many other Italian cities come alive even more on such a date.

It is to respect this tradition and to replicate, at the same time, the joy for life that Italian display in their country that the members of Sons of Italy’s Garibaldi Lodge #2583 in Eastchester celebrate every year Carnevale. This year the venue chosen was Scavello’s On The Island and it was definitely a great choice.
