Ocean City Today

Italian festival another success

Apr 05, 2018




The eighth annual St. Joseph’s Day Italian Festival on March 24 sponsored by the Ocean City Lodge of the Sons and Daughters of Italy and St. Luke’s/St. Andrew’s Catholic Church was another big success and by far our best attended to date.

We had close to 1,500 attendees enjoy our home cooked Italian meals and baked goods. Music was again provided this year by The Mario Monaldi Band from Baltimore (a favorite of Italian Festivals throughout the Mid-Atlantic).

As the many attendees wandered the Hall, they bought Italian specialty foods and merchandise; participated in our large silent and Chinese auctions; played some games of chance and watched their children enjoy making Easter crafts.

It was a fun day and a very successful one for our charity and scholarship funds. We have many merchants of Ocean City, Bishopville, Ocean Pines and Berlin to thank for their generosity in sponsoring our entertainment, auctions and taking ads in our program.

These are the establishments that are the backbone of our community and we appreciate their support. It is a pleasure to acknowledge them and we encourage your readers to support them:
