People from McCauley and beyond had the opportunity to experience Winter in Little Italy. Three Sunday afternoons in December featured horse-drawn wagon rides taking people on a guided tour of Little Italy. Organized by the Viva Italia Business Association, other activities included the opportunity to buy freshly roasted chestnuts, and get a “passport” stamped at several local businesses for the chance to enter a draw for prizes.
