CUYAHOGA FALLS — Italian culture was celebrated once again in Cuyahoga Falls at Festa Italiana, which took place at Falls River Square July 24-26.

Crowds flocked to the event, as shown at right top, which featured music, games, activities and, of course, food.

Shown right middle on July 24 with the pizza frittas, or fried dough, they made for the festival are Rosalia Sferra, of Fairlawn, and Dora Raymond, of Stow, members of the Italian organization the Carovillese Crew.

Sausage and peppers were on the menu for LeRadici, as members, shown at right bottom from left, Joe Chiarappa, Domenico Cornacchione and Dora Wallace get cooking.

The Italian bowling game bocce was enjoyed by many at the festival, such as Liberato Cornacchione, who is pictured at left during a practice round. A bocce tournament took place throughout the weekend at the festival.

Festival visitors also enjoyed grape stomping and wine tasting over the weekend.
