Put October 1 on your calendar for the Little Italy Street Festival! Admission is free, and all proceeds help fund the Little Italy Museum and other local projects. Live music all day, wine tasting and food vendors, plus lots of hand made crafts. I’ll be there from 4:00 to 8:00 with my books and handmade bookmarks featuring Murano glass beads. Looking forward to seeing you there!
My local Little Italy is at the corner of Hwy. 87 and Julian Street. Look for Harry’s Hi Life, which was the original Italian Hotel where many arriving immigrants stayed until they founding housing.
