Fun at Festa

Each year we try to make it to the Rockford tradition that is Festa Italiana.  You always run into someone you know!  Good Italian fair food, entertainment, and rides for the kiddos make it a fun time.  Here are some of the highlights from last night...

Our "appetizers"...toasted ravioli, arancini (fried rice ball filled with meat, peas, and cheese), and olive salad...

I didn't get a pic of our meatball sandwich, but feast your eyes on the sfingi!  (sweet fried dough balls covered in cinnamon sugar...)  Fair food at it's finest!

Matthew enjoying the sfingi...

Dancers...

The three of us enjoying Festa!

Chris and Matthew at the granita stand...

Matthew REALLY wanted to ride the "choo choo", but it said for 40 inches and taller (which he is not quite), and we are pretty sure he wouldn't stay seated the whole time...Next year for sure!
