Hot on the heels of the newly expanded Holy Trinity Greek Festival, which wraps up Saturday, the St. Anthony of Padua Italian Festival is ready to start serving panzarottis Sunday. The 45th annual eight-day Wilmington festival will kick off at 3 p.m. and run until Sunday, June 16, taking over five city blocks between Howland and 11th streets and Lincoln and North Dupont streets.
