The Warren Italian-American Heritage Festival wrapped up Sunday night.

Things got started in Court House Square on Thursday, but planning the festival started back in January.

Activities included a wine tasting competition, a bocce tournament, and much more. Bands and singers also provided entertainment, and there was plenty of food to satisfy your taste buds.

Organizers said the focus on culture and tradition sets the festival apart from others.

“This is a family affair. My whole family is involved, people come down with their families, some people plan family reunions around this, and you see people maybe you haven’t seen in years, you’ll see them here,” said Carol Ficeti.

This was the twenty-ninth year for the Warren Italian-American Heritage Festival.
