Ferragosto 2017

Sunday the 20th of August the passionisti of IMSMC, presented themselves at the FerrAgosto display of Five Dock.

 For the vast majority, the day began at 430am, with all participants arriving at our cavalcata point on time...and right on cue, our stallions arrived at the Festa site!

Hats off to our club registrar, Leo Di Rocco, taking the "Bull by the horns", suddenly becoming "Chief Marshall" sending out instructions to the official marshall's and positioned our cars, ready for the public to feast their eyes!

All things considered, our contribution to the Festa was extremely significant... and the Festa's contribution to us was too! Gelato, Arrancini, Porchetta, Delicatessen delights, Food and drink all in abundance! did I mention Cannoli?

Our Club Stall was kept busy on the day and with great success. Thanks to Lino, Ori, Cate and yours trully!

Quite noticeable the smiles and inquisitive expressions of everyone that pass our vehicles... why do they have to pat the cars? Something we might work out next year....maybe!

A HUGE THANK YOU to all our participants. Your contribution to one of Sydney's biggest Italian festa is noted by some very important dignitaries.
