“The Bocce Classic Weekend”
In 1995, a group of bocce enthusiasts from the John Pirelli Lodge in Dayton Ohio, decided to host a small tournament on their grounds in an effort to promote the game and their Italian heritage to the surrounding community. The first tournament, played on five clay courts sported over 40 teams and was sparsely attended by those not familiar with the game. Since those days, The Bocce Classic has grown into an annual 3 day event played with over 60 teams and attended by thousands of spectators. There are now six synthetically covered courts with a lighting system that allows play well into the evening hours. Each year This event gets bigger and better, but every effort has been made to keep the flavor of the expanding its appeal to a wider range of persons in the community.
This years additions, food trucks and Garlic Fest! Garlic fest is a family friendly, fun filled and fragrant event, this festival features fantastic foods, marvelous music by The Menu’s, area artisans, goofy games, beer…and lots of GARLIC!
