Independence Sicilian Heritage Festival will be held this summer, one of few festivals scheduled since the pandemic began
INDEPENDENCE - Meatballs and spaghetti will abound at this year's Sicilian Heritage Festival despite the COVID-19 pandemic.
The festival, which is traditionally held the second week of March, has been rescheduled for June 4-6. It will be open to the public, featuring many attractions seen in previous years, such as a spaghetti-eating contest and a meatball toss.
Food vendors can sign up now for the event, with awards for best gravy and best Sicilian-themed table up for grabs.
With loosening COVID-19 restrictions, this festival is one of the first local festivals to be rescheduled, following the Louisiana Crawfish Festival, which will be held in late April.
