It's that time of year, Brisbanites — time to say goodbye to winter, cold weather and gloomy moods, and offer up a big hello spring, sunshine and blossoming flowers. If the change of season has you feeling not only extra chipper, but eager to get outside and make the most of it, Roma Street Parklands has just the event for you, too: its new weekend Blooms and Tunes series.

Taking place from 1–4pm every Saturday and Sunday in September, Blooms and Tunes combines live jazz and blues, an immensely picnic-worthy spot and the Parklands' already impressive greenery. You'll sit, listen to music and have a bite to eat, and you'll also be able to check out the 15,000-plus flowers blooming in the site's aptly named Spectacle Garden.

Tunes-wise, the lineup includes Andrea Kirwin and the Yamanui Social Club, Ingrid James Ensemble, Cigany Weaver, CC the Cat, Soulergy, Blues Arcadia and Mzaza, with a different artist playing each session.

You can bring your own snacks along, order a $25–65 hamper from The Garden Room Cafe along with something to sip on, or opt for a VIP package that includes drinks ($90–130) and a prime seating spot.

Heading along is free but, to keep the event COVID-19-safe, pre-registration is required.

Blooms and Tunes takes place at Roma Street Parklands every Saturday and Sunday in September from 1–4pm.
