The Fairborn restaurant's spin on the taco made famous by Nickelodeon's sitcom "iCarly" made its debut at the inaugural Taco Fiesta, which was held as a Taco Tuesday festival in 2018.

Giovanni's is bringing them back to this year's event planned for Sunday, June 30, at Fraze Pavilion, 695 Lincoln Park Boulevard in Kettering, said Amy Zahora, executive director of the Miami Valley Restaurant Association.

“The spaghetti tacos were a huge thing,” she said.

The gates open at 1 p.m. In addition to the food, there'll be performances by Mariachi Guadalajara and Yumbambe.

Admission is free.

“It is a whole Mexican (food) theme,” Zahora said.

Lawn chairs are welcome.
