City of Amsterdam Hosts ItaliaFest
Get ready for some great food and lots of fun beginning at 11am on Amsterdam’s South Side.
“As important as great food, great music and vendors are to Amsterdam’s Italiafest, the secret to why it’s a great festival are the great people who attend it and I’m looking forward to seeing them there on Saturday!” said Mayor Mike Cinquanti. “Getting to and from this year’s event will be much easier thanks to the CDTA free shuttles serving three different parking sights. So, I urge everyone to take advantage of them! I also want to thank River Ridge Living Center for their generosity in sponsoring this wonderful event for our city.”
