The Regina Margherita di Savoia Mixed Lodge #1094 of the Order Sons of Italy in America will again host an Italian Festa on the Waltham Common on Saturday, May 30th, from 11:00 am – 7:00 pm; rain date is Sunday, May 31st. In addition to showcasing Italian heritage, the Festa is a fundraiser for the various charities which the Order supports, such as Alzheimer's, Cooley's Anemia and Autism, as well as for the scholarships presented to deserving seniors based on academic achievement, community service and proficiency in the Italian language.

The Festa drew approximately 6,000 Festa-goers last year who perused the wares of over 75 vendors/crafters and who tasted the scrumptious fare of over 20 food vendors; this year the number of vendors will be even larger.

There were rides, games, raffles, prizes, music, dancing, concessions and fun for the whole family. Entertainment was provided to the Festa-goers for the entire day which included popular DJ's, accordion and mandolin music, an appearance by Tony DeMarco, the 1955 Welterweight Champion of the World, "Waltham Idol" singing competition winners and other special guests and features to name a few. This year's line-up of entertainers promises to be even more spectacular with performances by Entertainer Steven Savio, DJ Alan LaBella, Amici della Musica Italiana and the Senior Tones, to name a few.

Mark your calendars. You won't want to miss this great event. Check out the Festa's website at; click on the Festa tab.
