Little Italy Days took over Bloomfield with 4 days of Italian food, vendors, and entertainment.  The region’s largest heritage festival ran from Thursday August 18- Sunday August 21.  The streets were lined with various vendors selling Italian pizza, strombolis, pasta and canolis.  Italian flags and t-shirts were also for sale.  There were 3 packed stages with over 30 acts, including a Dean Martin impersonator and Italian opera singers.  Daisy from the Pittsburgh’s CW introduced some of the acts on Saturday afternoon, culminating with America’s favorite Frankie Vallie and the Four Seasons tribute band – The Jersey 4!  Other activities included a Miss Little Italy pageant and an Italian Idol contest.  There was also a Celebrity Bocce Challenge including media personalities such as Paul Martino, Jon Burnett, Mangino, Kevin Benson, Donnie Iris, Franco Harris & More!
