The annual Italian American Association of Ocean opens its 4-day festival on Wednesday, Aug. 10 at 5 p.m. until 11 p.m. each day at Joe Palaia Park. Everyone who has been to it in the past says 'Don't miss it! It's great!" And it runs through Sunday, Aug. 14.
The photos show the people getting the park ready for the big event.
There are rides of every sort, from kiddies to super stomach tingly. There is the hour 50-50 and the Biggy at the end of the evening. There are exhibits like the animals the kids can pet. The games of chance are many and suit all comers.
Then there is the food. The food to delight every palate, and the Italian deserts are magnifico!
Fireworks are Friday evening, and Frank Sinatra will be crooning...well the other Frank, at least.
Plenty of parking at the park and plenty of fun for all!
