Tipton, Pennsylvania – If you enjoy delicious Italian food and fine Italian music, then it is time for you to pull out your red, white and green and join the DelGrosso Family this Sunday, September 20th for the 26th Annual Italian Food and Heritage Festival.
“We are proud of our family heritage and traditions. If there is one thing Italian families love, it is good food. This annual showcase of food, family and fun is a celebration we look forward to every year,” says Carl Crider Jr, President of DelGrosso’s Amusement Park.
The Italian Food and Heritage Festival runs from 11am-5pm on Sunday, September 20th. DelGrosso Foods, Inc. and University Orthopedics Center sponsor this annual day of Italian food and music.
There will be something for every taste bud. The Kitchens of DelGrosso will be serving up Lasagna, Tortellini, Italian Wedding Soup, Pasta Fagioli and much more. Pacifico Bakery will have their amazing breads and the Mt. Carmel Social Committee features Italian Pastries that will include Biscotti and Cannoli. You can top off your visit with Italian Rum Cake or Tiramisu from the Kitchens of DelGrosso.
Italian entertainer Jimmy Sapienza and Five Guys Named Moe will take the stage at 1pm and 3pm. Faiella’s Father and Son Strolling Guitar and Mandolin Duo will entertain guests throughout the park.
The Italian Food and Heritage Festival takes place during the park’s annual Car Load Sale Weekend. On September 19th and 20th up to 10 people safely seat-belted in one vehicle can get an All-Day Fun Pass for the rides for just $15 per car. This is a great deal for the family who would like to have some park fun before the end of the season.
