Now, 21 years later, San Diego’s Little Italy is setting the standard for all urban neighborhoods, making this year even more exciting than ever as Little Italy opens their streets to San Diego residents and over 120,000 visitors to celebrate the country’s largest Italian homecoming.

There will be stickball, food from culinary geniuses and masterpieces by artists.

The event takes place Sunday, October 11th from 10:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
