Festa Italiana (formerly Viva Italia Viva Edmonton) on August 25th brought the sights, sounds, and tastes of Italy to McCauley. Organized by the Italian Youth Association of Edmonton, the event featured a car and motorcycle display, food trucks, wrestling, soccer, entertainment, and a special appearance by celebrity chef David Rocco. The beautiful weather and exciting line-up resulted in 95 Street and Giovanni Caboto Park being packed with people.
