It’s countdown time for us in Collinsville as we push forward to make the 2017 Italian Fest the best yet. Our Italian exhibition (above) launches Italian Fest month on September 1st! We’re very excited about this year’s show as we pull back the curtain on this wonderful city, take you through the sights of Ancient Rome, and wow you with a collection of pieces from Rome itself! And that’s just the beginning. Keep an eye on our Italian Fest website www.italianfest.net. It’s not too early to plan for this year’s parade (Sat., Sept. 16)! The parade theme is also “Get Your Toga On!” so put on that toga, and join the fun!
