Celebrating 2013’s Ferragosto: The Roaring 20s with some casino games

Little Italy’s party of the summer, Ferragosto, returns for its next big bash, “Pompeii: Little Italy’s Toga Party,” on Saturday, August 15 from 6:00 p.m. to midnight with a VIP reception starting at 5:00 p.m. Guests are invited to Amici Park in San Diego’s Little Italy for an evening that calls for guests to bring out their togas and strap on sandals for an evening of festivities with food, drinks and a night where everyone’s Italian.

“We are pulling out all the stops to recreate the historic Italian city, Pompeii where there will be non-stop jaw dropping moments throughout the night that will have everyone talking for weeks,” said Luke Vinci, Ferragosto’s chairman. “The event takes two years of planning because we make sure that every detail of the night is one that will be unforgettable—Ferragosto is one of San Diego’s premier summer events for a reason.”

Ferragosto is San Diego’s own take on the Italian holiday “Feriae Augsti.” This year’s event will transform Amici Park into the ancient city of Pompeii for a toga party with fantasy settings, circus rides and live entertainment. The last few events have transformed Little Italy’s Amici Park into a Roman Coliseum and even a scene straight from the Roaring 20’s. The fourth annual event will include dishes, drinks and cocktails from San Diego’s finest restaurants including Monello, Isola Pizza Bar, Kettner Exchange, Cookbook, PrepKitchen, Caffe Italia, Bencotto and more.

This fundraising event helps support the Washington Elementary School Foundation, Our Lady of the Rosary Church and the Little Italy Association. Tickets start at $105 for general single tickets and are $1,050 for a general table—upgraded VIP prices are also available. More information about the event and tickets can be found at
