After almost three years, the wait is over for fans of the Italian Festival and the royalty who were originally chosen in 2019 to represent the 2020 festival. The Italian Festival in Tickfaw will kickoff at 5 p.m. Friday and last through 6 p.m. Sunday, held on the festival grounds on U.S. Highway 51.
