The Cesare Battisti Lodge will host its first-ever Festa Italiana from 5 to 11 p.m. on Aug. 25 and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Aug. 26 at Villa Cesare in Schererville, Ind.

A variety of Italian favorites will be served, including pizza, Italian sausage, Italian beef, arancini, meatball sandwiches and specialty desserts. The event will also feature live entertainment, a beer garden, bocce tournament, wine pairing demonstrations, pizza-making and cannoli eating contests, and activities for children.

A local chapter of the Italian Sons and Daughters of America, the Cesare Battisti Lodge #27 is a non-profit organization that has been contributing to local charities for nearly a century.
