Another successful Winter in Little Italy was organized by the Viva Italia District Association on December 8th, 2019. Hundreds of people came from all over the city to enjoy horse-drawn wagon rides, free hot chocolate at Zocalo, roasted chestnuts prepared by the Associazione Giovani Italiani di Edmonton (Italian Youth Association) outside the Italian Centre, and crafts and activities at Studio 96 from the McCauley Community League. McCauley Revitalization was also a partner in the event. Here’s a look!
