LaFesta Italiana

Today, Bobby and I went to Scranton to the LaFesta Italiana, a local Italian festival.  It took up the entire courthouse square and was mostly food booths, with a couple of music spots, and one t-shirt, flag and other Italian stuff booth.  Here is just a few of the things we saw at the 37th annual Italian festival.
 Red, white and green was everywhere.
Even on girls rear ends.
There were food vendors from New York City and all over Pennsylvania.
Vodka seems to be a popular ingredient in cooking out here.

There were plenty of places to sit, and listen to music, or eat...
or sit and drink.
Pizza was everywhere.
Italian sausage.
Fried ravioli.
Italian pastries of all kinds.
Here she is sacking up my cannoli.
Cute shoppers of all ages and ethnicity were on the square..
 Lots of serious eating.
One of the bands that was playing when we got there.
The folks were enjoying the music, either street dancing or just sitting.
These musicians were on the other side of the square and could flat play their  guitars.

This band was playing when we left, and this man was singing to the ladies.
The buildings down town were spectacular, and will be another blog.
This festival was a three day deal, September 1,2, and 3.  I am just glad I got to go for the afternoon, because my weight would have climbed to former days when I was going to Sul Ross!
