The Rondout Business Association is the group who brought you this year's very fun, cold and clothed Mardi Gras festival. The Cajun event featued Irish pipers, ice sculptures and rollery derby girls in what can only be described as Kingston's take on New Orleans.
Well, the association is at it again. This time is Kingston's Inaugural Italian Festival on Sept 29 and 30.
The group is promising a spaghetti eating contest, pizza throwing, grape stomping, wheels of chance, live music and fireworks.
Just don't be surprised if Kingston takes some liberties on what's Italian.
Because the Rondout can be fun ( yes, yes, sometimes it isn't).
The Freeman will keep you posted.
