Festa Italiana changes water bottle policy due to heat wave

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The extreme heat has this weekend's lakefront festival making changes.

Festa Italiana has extended it water bottle policy and says each person will be allowed to bring in one unopened plastic bottle of water on Saturday.   Only unopened plastic bottles of water will be allowed inside the gates.

"We're letting everyone bring in one bottle of water, but there'll be water on the grounds," Cucina Manager Marie Andaloro-Lieber said. "There'll be a cooling station and there's a lot of areas where you can get out of the sun."

The 42nd annual Festa Italiana festival runs through Sunday on the Summerfest grounds.

Festa Italiana is open noon to midnight Saturday.
