#TBT: Italian Fest in the Early Years

The first Italian Festival was in 1976 and was called the Saint Anthony’s Festival on Connecticut Street.

The festival then relocated to Hertel Avenue in North Buffalo with the first festival held there in 1988. We featured a look back at some of the old photos from the festival for today’s THROWBACK THURSDAY segment.

These pictures are courtesy of the Porto family — ED PORTO was the co-founder of the St. Anthony’s Italian Festival and we’d like to thank his family for providing us with this look back in time!
