Milwaukee -- You can get a little piece of Italy in Milwaukee this weekend.
Festa Italiana is celebrating its 37th year and the theme is, \"It feels good to be Italian.\"
Festival goers can listen to live music entertainment and take a romantic gondola ride.
Nearly 40 vendors will serve up traditional foods, which you can toast to with a glass of vino.
This year's expanded wine area includes three tents, featuring Italy's most popular wine regions.
A fireworks show will top off the celebration each night as well.
Festa Italiana runs Friday through Sunday.
CBS 58's Marshanna Hester spoke with an organizer about the event's history.
