The 128th Lowellville Mount Carmel Society Italian Festival is kicking off Wednesday night. Here's everything you need to know before you go.

The festival kicks off Wednesday, July 19 at 6:00 p.m. and will last until Saturday, July 22.

The festival starts at 6:00 p.m. each night and there will be plenty to do every day including live music, a bocce tournament, plenty of food vendors and of course, the Baby Doll Dance.

The Baby Doll Dance will take place every night Wednesday through Friday between 10:00 p.m. and 10:30 p.m., but this year there will be one small change

Lowellville Mount Carmel Society President, Zach Harklerode tells 21 News the dance will be the same as it always was, but there will be a new person operating the baby doll itself.

After his last dance as the baby doll in 2022, Frank Speziale has passed the torch along to his nephew, Nicholas Speziale. Harklerode says Frank will still be heavily involved with the setup process and monitoring the baby doll during the dance.

"He's still Mr. Baby Doll. He's just not dancing in it," Harklerode said.

Additionally, the Bocce tournament will begin at 6:00 p.m. Wednesday and the finals will begin Saturday at 6:00 p.m. There will also be a Morra tournament on Friday starting at 6:00 p.m.

Each night will have live music with the Mount Carmel Band performing on all four days along with Nunzio & The Melodies on Thursday, RDNA on Friday and the Jim Frank Combo on Saturday.

The festival will conclude on Saturday with a fireworks display at 11:45 p.m.

When it comes to parking, Harklerode tells us there are a few pay to park lots as well as one free lot available. One paid lot is located just across the bridge on Washington Street and another is located along River Road.

Harklerode says parking should cost between $5 to $10, but did not know of an exact amount.

The free lot is a grass lot located near the railroad tracks, but Harklerode says this lot fills up fast. If you do get a spot in this lot, Hardlerode reminds guests to use the dedicated crossings and not walk along the tracks.

Washington Road will be closed for the entirety of the festival.
