Arizonan’s have many ways to escape the summer heat and one of our favorite vacation spots is San Diego, Calif. Check out this fun event. What began as a neighborhood celebration 20 years ago has grown into a multi-block, colorful, musical and culinary celebration of everything Sicilian. Grape stomping, Sicilian treats, cultural displays, folk-dancing and nonstop live entertainment. Plus a festive Bambino Zone and Bellissimo Car Show.
Headling this years 20th Anniversary event is The Sicilian Tenors, direct from New York City. Three Sicilian American tenors, Aaron Caruso, Elio Scaccio, and Sam Vitale, will take the Sicilian Festival audience on a romantic musical journey during their dynamic presentation.
The Sicilian Festival is also the perfect venue for families with children. All children’s activities are FREE, and include a large inflatable slide, puppet theatre shows, face painting, and many other activities to keep the bambini entertained throughout day-without emptying their parents’ pocketbooks!
Admission: Free. Locatiion: Little Italy section of Downtown San Diego. Time: 10am-6pm. For more information, log on to the Sicilian Festival website at www.sicilianfesta.com
