Photo Gallery: Mahoningtown celebrates Community Day

NEW CASTLE — Darlington Park took on a festive atmosphere Sunday as Mahoningtown celebrated its annual Community Day.

The day-long event featured ethnic food, craft vendors, live entertainment, a 5K run, car, bike and art shows and fireworks.

Perhaps the day’s oldest guest was Elvira Ruozzo, who was celebrating her 92nd birthday. The crowd in the park sang “Happy Birthday” to her. Mrs. Ruozzo is the brother of the late Dante DiThomas, a New Castle native and music arranger who not only led his own orchestra but who also worked for 23 years in Hollywood at various movie studios, including 10 at Disney.

Maybe. I'm not sure.
Nah, it's not for me.
