We ate, we drank, we were ITALIAN!
The days definitely had an autumn feel to them this past weekend for M Resort's Second Annual Italian Festival - a bit chilly in the morning but warming up nicely as the days progressed.
"Festive" it certainly was - red and white striped tents sprouted around the Villaggio Del Sole filled with smiling vendors, the smell of their delicious food permeating the air. Kids were jumping away in the bouncy castle and enjoying the carnival games. The main stage was home to live entertainment from Mark O'Toole to Musicology and our very own Chef Tina demonstrating some of her amazing recipes. The spaghetti eating and grape stomping contests were definitely a hit too - congrats to all our winners!
A special thanks to all the media teams who came out to compete for charity in our media grape stomp challenge - Channel 13 KTNV ABC won their heat for the second year in a row! KXNT News Radio 100.5 FM/840 AM brought home the win in the second heat. Each will receive a $500 donation to the charity of their choice.
We'd also like to thank all our wonderful vendors and sponsors for participating and especially to all you guests who came out to enjoy the festival with us - we ate, we drank, we were ITALIAN!
