10th La Fiera adds more

Alpine Observer - - News -

PLANS for this year’s La Fiera in Myrtle­ford are all but locked in ahead of the fes­ti­val’s 10th year.

The cel­e­bra­tion of Ital­ian cul­ture will be­gin on Tues­day, May 15 and run through to Sun­day, May 20 mark­ing its decade-long mile­stone.

The fes­ti­val will again in­clude var­i­ous spe­cial events to go with the co­pi­ous amounts of de­li­cious Ital­ian food and wine along with ex­panded chil­dren’s ac­tiv­i­ties.

Satur­day will again be the peak ac­tiv­ity day with the Food and Wine Festa to be held in the Pi­azza as live mu­si­cal per­for­mances en­ter­tain the crowd.

Among the chil­dren ac­tiv­i­ties at Ju­bilee Park will be free face paint­ing, bal­loon an­i­mals, chil­dren’s ac­tiv­ity tent, har­le­quin pup­pet show and a photo booth.

Myrtle­ford Savoy will again play Wan­garatta for the La Fiera Cup on the Sun­day af­ter­noon.

La Fiera spokesman John Coste­naro said the fes­ti­val was con­tin­u­ing to grow ev­ery year and was be­com­ing one event in the North East not to be missed.

“La Fiera is proud to once again de­velop a pro­gram of events that will de­light ev­ery­one,” he said.

“Each year our fes­ti­val grows and be­comes more ex­cit­ing.

“We have a won­der­ful range of en­ter­tain­ment.”

A ma­jor fundraiser for the event will take place on Sun­day, Fe­bru­ary 25 with a smor­gas­bord din­ner be­ing held at Club Savoy.
