The All Things Italian Street Festival in Fairfield Iowa, named a "must-see event" by the Iowa Tourism Office, is free to everyone and draws close to 5,000 people each year. Known for it's homemade lasagna and freshly filled cannoli, the festival receives high marks for it's authentic Italian cuisine.
Called Madonnari because original artists drew pictures of the Madonna, this art form has been adopted by local artists who "take to the streets" and delight the crowds with their chalk drawings.
Each year different entertainers flock to Fairfield to be part of a select group of artists that thrill the crowds.
Italian sports cars are fun. You can see why this festival-goer just had to have her picture taken with one.
