BEREA, OH (WOIO) - The Italian American Summer Festival is this weekend July 1 - 3 at the Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds in Berea.

The festival celebrates Italian culture and tradition with plenty of food and fun.

There are Bocce tournaments, dancing with live entertainment and a food court.

Speaking of food, a big fav is the pasta eating contest.
