Italian Spaghetti Dinners - An Arkansas Tradition.
This year's festival is scheduled for August 9th-13th. Check out this post to see what it's like.
The Our Lady of the Lake luncheon originally started in 1909, and its major distinction is how it’s served. Instead of the expected plastic tablecloths and paper plates you might expect, this one is served on real dinnerware, at tables just like in someone’s home. However, few people would expect to eat 1800 plates of spaghetti in anyone’s home! Some 3600 meatballs will be produced for the event.
If you’d like more information about Italian dinners at Arkansas Catholic churches, contact the Diocese of Little Rock at (501) 664-0340.
