Thank you and welcome to all of those new subscribers of CiaoDC.com. It was a pleasure meeting you at Festa Italiana - and what a great day!! Did you try the gelato popsicles? What about the juicy porchetta? And that stilt walker oh my! Special "Ciao" to six-year old Ashlyn Holtzapple and her Mommy, Lauren (photographed above) for representing Kensington Parkwood Elementary's Italian language program in Kensington, Maryland sponsored by the Italian Cultural Institute. Ashlyn sported the "Fratelli d'Italia" tee shirt, spoke some Italian and ate the yummy gelato made and scooped by our friends of Dolci Gelati. We took great pride in being the media sponsor of this fabulous annual event and can't wait for next year!
Didn't get a chance to come out to Festa or just need a quick CiaoDC and all things Italian fix? Visit us at the end of the month at the National Italian American Foundation's Expo Italia on Friday, October 28 and Saturday, October 29 at the Washington Hilton and Towers. More here.
