    Ive always considered the Italians to be very artistic ,extremely creative besides having garlic breaths and volatile  tempers

    The Ettalong Italian festival was awash with Italians  plus people from all other nationalities

    Parking in the area was at a premium with all the adjoining streets chokkers with cars

    The festival is normally held in the Paradiso building just out of the main Ettalong shopping centre and is a building with a labyrinth of  shopping arcades and courtyards plus the 4 cinemas

    The décor is traditional Italian and you have to congratulate the owner for the time effort and money he must have spent on recreating the Italian murals,polished marble floors  ,statues etc  

    The place was humming with people and often  it was hard to move forward

    The small arcade shops were full of merchandise both useful and not and the food stalls and coffee shops had people queuing to be served

    There was only Jim and myself on this ride and we wandered from one courtyard to another looking at the display of Italian Cars ,2 beautifull big white dogs and other bric a brac

    On arrival a male singer belted out a excellent version of "Sweet Caroline" whilst in another courtyard a female singer gave her rendition of" Vollare" both supported by a boisterous audience

    I reckon many Italian Mamas and Poppas would have felt well rewarded for their visit  

    A short ride and a pleasant deviation from our norm

    Oldscoot -The answer is yes BUT-I dont think our members would want their photos appearing on a national forum PLUS Im not a good photographer PLUS Idont know how to post photos on this forum PLUS I refuse to do selfies

    Our website often contains photos of rides etc and I think our members are happy to be shown
