We're thrilled that Louis Prima Jr. and the Witnesses will be returning as the headline act at Rome Through Richmond Town this year! On Friday, July 22nd, BP Oddo joined with Ed Wiseman of Historic Richmond Town and major sponsors Lois and Richard Nicotra at Lorenzo’s Cabaret to announce that Louis Prima Jr., who was a huge hit last year, will join us at the third annual festival.
The free Columbus Day celebration will take place on Saturday, October 8th from 12-5pm at Historic Richmond Town.
In addition to the announcement of the headliner, BP Oddo noted that this year's festival will have even more food options. Some of the Island’s best eateries will also be participating this year, including Angelina’s, Da Noi, Max’s Es-Ca, Novelli’s Pork Store, A&C Superette, Montalbano’s and The Stone House.
“A few years ago, we made the decision that we wanted to try to celebrate Columbus Day weekend in a broader way,” noted Oddo. “By bringing Staten Islanders top notch entertainment, food and educational opportunities, we hope to fully celebrate the Italian and Italian-American experience.”
