A great crowd showed up to the first ever Festa Italiana this past weekend at the Houghton County Arena. The festival featured traditional Italian music and entertainment as well as many different historical exhibits. Chairperson Deborah Mann says the festival was created through interest of local Italians.

The event also had many contests including pizza tossing, spaghetti eating and grape stomping.
