Weekend of activities at Italian Market Festival

    The Italian Market is going to be even busier than usual this weekend when the annual South 9th Street Festival sets up shop.

    Live music, a half ball tournament, artisan vendors and of course, the procession of Saints are all part of the two-day event.

    There’s no rain date, so pack your umbrellas, because the outdoor festival lasts 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days and includes an after party at South Philly Bar & Grill.

    Where else will you find a 100-foot-long sausage?
