San Rocco Festival August 8,9,10 2008 Aliquippa

I almost forgot the San Rocco Festival was this weekend! I was scanning the schedule and came across Fabulous Frankie Capri on Sunday at 6pm. Could it be the legendary Pittsburgh Elvis reincarnation? One of my most surreal memories from Pittsburgh was when I was at the Lava Lounge 10 years ago in a martini induced trip where Kid Capri's monkeys were banging on the drums and people had dressed up in various costumes which were in a pile on the floor. Too much.

This is the 83rd annual Festa di San Rocco, held in Aliquippa, PA. Check out the history involved here.

Directions are further down this page.
