Post 286 helped with Italian Fest this year. The festivities included a run and a fireworks celebration that the post took part in. The events were separated into two different shifts one from 9 - 11:30 am and the second one from 6:30 - 10:30 pm.
The first shift was responsible for blocking off several intersections along Main Street while the run was conducted from the Festival Site to 7th Street.
The second shift was responsible for blocking off the parking lot that is just South of the Festival Site. This was to prevent onlookers from wondering into the parking lot while the crew set off the fireworks.
Both shifts received free food and drinks as well as free entrance into the festival.
