Newport's Italianfest kicks off on Thursday night and runs through the weekend.
Italianfest, named a Top 20 Event for June by the Southeast Tourism Society, is held along Newport's Riverboat Row between the Purple People and Taylor-Southgate Bridges.
The festival has authentic Italian food and live Italian music performed by entertainers from around the nation and from "the old country", a Golf Outing, and a Family Photo Booth showcasing the history of Italian families that settled in Newport generations ago. Other fun includes a pizza eating contest, a cooking contest, games, and rides for the little ones.
Times are Thursday, June 13 from 5 to 11 p.m.; Friday, June 14 from 5 to 11 p.m.; Saturday, June 15 from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Sunday, June 16 from noon to 9 p.m.
