Taste of Little Italy on this Weekend

Kicking off today, the Taste of Little Italy street festival takes over College Street between Shaw & Bathurst this weekend.

The band schedule is action packed and the namesake tastings, just as diverse. This promises to be a festival that won't have you walking around with a corn-on-the-cob, that's for sure.
