HURLEY— People flocked to Silver Street in downtown Hurley on Saturday to celebrate Festival Italiano, a gathering of food, music and games to honor the area’s Italian heritage.

The celebration kicked off late in the morning as vendors got cooking, preparing for the lunch rush crowd. There were food booths up and down the street, also offering refreshments.

Games and kids activities were held at a park downtown, including face painting and a bounce house. A line of vendor booths also were popular with the crowd.
