Warren Italian American Festival crowns tiny king and queen

Posted: Updated:

WARREN, Ohio - The 29th annual Italian American Heritage Festival is underway on Courthouse Square.

This year's event began with the crowning of Dominic Bower and  Michelina Wayt as Tiny King and Queen. 5-year-old Michelina's mom Nicole, says their family loves coming to the Italian Festival every year.

Festival vice president, Phil Sidoti  says an always popular attraction, the bocce tournament, continues through Sunday. He says 24 teams will take part in a double elimination competition. Sidoti says many of the past teams are participating, but there will be new teams trying their skill as well.

Sidoti says the Morra Tournament also draws a lot of participants and spectators. Morra is a traditional Italian hand and finger game involving strategy, tactics and energy.

Entertainment scheduled for  the main stage include Steve Fazzini, Dominic Tocco, Simona DeRosa, Aaron Caruso and Marcoantonio.

More than fifty vendors are selling food, drinks and other goods.

Organizers say there is plenty  of parking.

The festival runs through Sunday night.
