According to the press release, festival goers can feast on Italian specialties from Tony’s Travelling Trattoria, hamburgers from Spank’s Gourmet Grub, Dr. Pepper braised pork and the Lab’s ginger and honey-infused lemonade, crispy empanadas from the Empanada Guy, Puerto Rican cuisine from El Lechon de Negron, pizza from Rolling Dough Wood Fire Pizza and milkshakes and donuts from Carnival Donut Bar.

“A day like this brings the entire program and community together for a great reason,” Gorman said in the press release. “In the past we have used these funds to pay for the overnight trip tournaments in Pennsylvania and North Carolina, these funds also help with the cost of team equipment, off season tournament entry, apparel, summer camps and more.  This is an ever-growing program that has no ceiling for success and I look forward to seeing everyone at the festival.”

In addition to the food, Brother John Brown Band will provide live music. There will also be activities for kids like sumo wrestling and corn hole. Craft vendors will also be set up at the event, according to the press release.

Admission is $5 per person. Children ages five and under attend free of charge. The event will take place rain or shine at Orange Avenue School on Saturday, April 28 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., according to the press release.
