MEQUON-It's not every day folks burst out in song in the produce section. But that's exactly what happened Monday at the Sendik's grocery store.

Artists with Kay Sparkling Theatrical Productions performed an Italian opera to the shock and delights of shoppers.

Since opera is an important part of Italian culture, organizers thought this would be a great way to promote a taste of Festa Italian which begins this Friday at the Summerfest Grounds.
