Denny Della-Penna, center, owner of Bruno’s Restaurant and organizer of the Italian Festival celebrated by hundreds Sunday on the west end of Indiana, promised during his stage announcements that the festival would return for a third year in 2020.

Festivalgoers enjoyed a car cruise, nearly continuous live music, Italian foods and delicacies and ice cold beverages to take the edge off the sunny weather.
