Viva Italia Viva Edmonton took place on August 26, and was bigger than ever. Giovanni Caboto Park and part of 95 Street were transformed with the sights, smells, and sounds of Italy. The event was organized by the Italian Youth Association of Edmonton. The Italian Centre Shop was the title sponsor. McCauley Revitalization/City of Edmonton supported the event as well. Here is a look!
