From 95th Santa Lucia Italian Festival Website:

Omaha's Santa Lucia Festival was founded in 1925 by Grazia Bonafede Caniglia. The mother of six immigrated to the United States from Carlentini, Sicily in 1900. She had a deep faith, walking from Sixth & Pierce Streets at five every morning to say her prayers at nearby St. Philomena Catholic Church (now St. Frances Cabrini).

As more and more Italians built new lives in Omaha, Grazia made it her mission to recreate Carlentini's Santa Lucia Festival, to give immigrants a strong connection with their former country, and deepen their faith in the new land.

Omaha's Santa Lucia Festival is one of three organizations supported by the Italian Community. Omaha's Sons of Italy was formed in 1926, originally as the Benito Mussolini Lodge. The American Italian Heritage Society. formed in 1980, sponsors La Festa Italiana each September.
