Hosted by St Thomas of Villanova Catholic Church, Mareeba, all are welcome to join in with the mass on Sunday at 2.30pm followed by a procession of the statue through the streets. 

Once the procession is complete, event goers are encouraged to return to the top oval where there’ll be Italian food and great fun for all.

There’ll be activities on the oval, commencing at about 4pm, with a lucky dip, knock-em-downs, a chocolate table as well as face painting in the playground. 

There’ll be an extravaganza of food with Italian sausages, beef sausages, hot chips and hot dogs, or enjoy some delicious gnocchi and homemade pasta. 

Keep the Italian feast going with a huge range of biscuits and slices, torrone and cannoli available for dessert.

The event is fully licenced and a range of food vans will also be available on the day, including Cafe Crema with coffees, chai, hot chocolate and iced drinks, as well as Mungalli Creek Dairy ice creams in many flavours to choose from. 

Organisers have a great day planned including entertainment by Fortunato Isgro and dancers from the Tableland Academy of Dance.

Winners of the colouring in competition will be announced at 6.30pm and be sure to hang around for the fireworks that will start at 8.30pm.

All are welcome and organisers are excited to bring back this popular event.
