Adventure TV (Channel 77 on Comcast) is going to air nearly an hour of footage of last year's Italian Festival this Thursday, June 30th at 3 PM. If you can't be home to watch it, set your TIVO. It opens with a seven minute clip of the Grape Stomp and then goes on to Bocce, Pizza Toss and entertainment.
You can also visit Adventure TV's website at http://adventuretv.bravehost.com which will explain the rather complicated means by which you can stream the program to your computer.
