The annual Little Italy Days festival will soon be back in Bloomfield. Liberty Avenue from Ella to Gross Streets will transform into the city's largest heritage festival from Aug. 18-21. "Little Italy Days is coming back for the 20th year, and it's going to be a fantastic day of entertainment and Italian pride," said recent KDKA retiree Paul Martino, who will emcee the event.
