35th Annual Great Italian Festival

Posted: Updated:

The 35th annual Eldorado "Great Italian Festival" brought thousands of people into downtown Reno this weekend.

Our own Kristen Remington and Landon Miller stomped some grapes-- Italian style.

Others came out for the homemade food, Italian music and festivities.

People from near and far have been flocking to the Italian festival for years, and some make it an annual tradition. 

"We've got people that have been here for all 35 Italian festivals. We've got more cookers, more booths this year than we've ever had before." said Glenn Carano the general manager of the Eldorado.

Authentic Italian food, along with good company, makes the Italian festival a popular event.
