The 13th annual Italian Fest took place Saturday in downtown Iron Mountain. The event offered food, music and activities, all with an Italian flavor. Italian Fest was sponsored by Local 1329 of the Michigan Laborers’ Training and Apprenticeship Institute, or LiUNA, and organized by the Downtown Development Association.
