FESTA ITALIANA ASSOCIATION INC
February 28, 2010

The Portland Italian Festa is an important part of the city's cultural life as it helps to preserve Italian culture. Hundreds of volunteers work to put together an important summer event for the city. There is no charge for admission to the event and it provides great entertainment for thousands of citizens and its visitors.
