Italian Festival Hits Wildwood

Festival features meatball rolling relay

North Wildwood kicks off the celebration to its 16th annual Italian American Festival during a three-day-long weekend event starting Friday and rolling on through Sunday.

Sponsored by The Knights of Columbus and featuring a celebration of Italian heritage with countless street vendors, this festival has a parade and live entertainment including a concert by the Bronx wanderers.

There will be a variety of Italian and non-Italian foods for you to enjoy, along with a meatball rolling relay -- and who doesn't want to do that?

The festivities will take place on Olde New Jersey Avenue beginning at 4 p.m. Admission is free to anyone and proceeds will benefit charity.
