34th Annual Son’s Of Italy Italian Festival Returns to Dutchess County
It's a sign of the 'unofficial' start of summer, Memorial Day Weekend. Break out the white pants and the flip flops, and get ready for all things Hudson Valley summer!
One of those 'things' that just makes it feel like summertime has been happening here in the Hudson Valley for 33 years, with 2023 marking the 34th year. It can be classified as a staple for many in the area as part of their Memorial Day weekend festivities.
I'll tell you that even when I lived about two hours away in Massachusetts, I would come out to visit family for MDW weekend just to hit this local event.
Get ready for the Joe DiMaggio Lodge 2248 Son's of Italy Italian Festival, better knows as 'the festa.'
