5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Outside St. Peter’s Church, 72 Federal St., Portland. On Facebook.
There won’t be any fat pole climbing this year, but there are still several good reasons to attend the Italian bazaar at St. Peter’s Church. The Annual Bazaar is a wonderful gathering of old and new friends, and you don’t have to be Italian to stock up on culinary delights. From sausages with peppers and onions to pasta and meatballs to pizza, there are many ways to feel full. Don’t forget your sweet tooth, as there will be more Italian cookies than you’ve probably ever seen in one place at once. There will also be live entertainment. Mama Mia!
