The West Virginia Italian Heritage Festival celebrates its 36th year.
On Saturday, families packed into downtown Clarksburg to enjoy some family fun like face painting and kids games. Spectators were even able to browse and taste most of the Italian food. Vendors were on hand with Italian merchandise.
One family said it's a great day to get the kids out to celebrate, and to teach the children about their Italian heritage.
“We're going to get something to eat, and the boys are getting their face painted and we're just going to enjoy just a little bit of the music the dancing. Let the boys learn a little bit about their Italian heritage,” said Julie Minnoccci, of Bridgeport.
The festival continues with Sunday mass, and car show. There will be plenty of live music and Italian cuisine for spectators to enjoy.
