Hail Caesar for the Ferragosto Festival. Pictures: ARMEN DEUSHIAN FIVE Dock truly was a ''Little Italy'' on Sunday as the Ferragosto Festival enjoyed another successful year. Premier Morris Iemma was one of an estimated 50,000 people who came to sample the food, enjoy the music and soak up the atmosphere on Great North Rd. Among the attractions were a traditional Italian piazza at Garfield St where festival-goers could sip a coffee or a glass of wine and watch the world go by. Others chose to browse the many eateries and stalls or listen to some well-known Italian chefs reveal their secrets at FerraKitchen. Another addition to the festival -- and an instant crowd favourite -- was a display of classic Fiat classic cars. Seven-year-old Vito Bellissimo who attended the festival with his parents Frank and Tina was a big fan. ''They're cute,'' he said. Mr Bellissimo said the family had really enjoyed themselves. ''We met some Greek friends and showed them round,'' he said. ''It's a beautiful place with a rich Italian flavour.'' Canada Bay Mayor Angelo Tsirekas hailed the day a great success. ''It was wonderful to see so many people come along and enjoy the celebration,'' he said. ''Thank you to everyone who made the day possible and those who came along to enjoy the magnificent day.'' 10am -- 3pm Sunday 24th August, 2008 WatervieW in Bicentennial Park Bicentennial Drive, off Australia Avenue Bicentennial Park, Sydney Olympic Park Please contact us to register for the expo: Contact: Catherine Pappas or Crystal Bellchambers T: (02) 9763 7833 E: firstname.lastname@example.org * Winner announced at 3:00pm.
