If you're looking for a taste of Italian, it won't get much better than the annual Santa Lucia Festival in downtown Omaha.
The event opened up at 6:30 p.m.
It's featuring many Italian favorites.
You'll find a wine and beer garden, rides for the kids, and entertainers for the whole family.
The food is also a big draw.
“All of the Italian food that we have. All the way from pizza, to pasta, to cannolis. In fact, we're going to have a cannoli eating contest that's going to have a lot of fun involved with it,” says Sam Maddalena, an organizer.
The event lasts all weekend, and ends Sunday evening.
