The official St. Ann's Italian Festival website has more information and details on the events and performers, but here's a brief recap of the musical acts on this year's bill (entertainment starts at 8:15 each night):

* Thursday, July 22: Jay and the Americans
* Friday, July 23: The Nerds
* Saturday, 7/24: Ryan Pelton - Tribute to the King (that would be Elvis, not Michael Jackson)
* Sunday, 7/25: The Stylistics
* Monday, 7/26: Cristina Fontanelli & the Jordan Thomas Orchestra

As always, there will be games and lots and lots of food, including Italian sausage, calzones, zeppole, cannoli, and much more. Enjoy!
