Festival Italiano at Belmar

September 7, 2014

This weekend marked the 11th annual italian festival at Belmar. Sunny skies and lovely temperatures lured a group of us to the event. Moria and Mario love the event so much, they attend the festival both days, every year. It lasts from 10am-9pm on Saturday and 10am-5pm on Sunday. This was my first year to stroll along the closed off streets lined with artisan, food and wine vendors. Gelato, pizza, and italian sausage were tasty italian food choices.

Along with trying the food, we checked out the chalk art, watched the flag throwers, and surveyed the bocce tournament. We could have also taken an Italian lesson if we wanted, though I don’t think stomping grapes was open to adults, only children. Music stages stood at both ends of the long street of tents, and schedules for all activities are available on the website: http://www.belmarcolorado.com/sub/event/festival_italiano/

After enjoying a nice afternoon in the middle patio area, we bought some flavored pasta and pastries for the road. It was a nice, relaxing afternoon with friends. ETB
