We can't all see in spring in Italy, sorry, but Brisbanites can do the next best thing. And even if you managed to hop over to Europe when their flowers were blooming earlier in the year, you can pretend you're still there when the season hits the southern hemisphere.
There'll be colourful Italian cocktails and plenty of Italian cuisine when the two-day Spring Spritz Party comes to Welcome to Bowen Hills across the weekend of Saturday, September 1 and Sunday, September 2. Clearly you know what you'll be drinking, with different varieties available — at $12 each, or four for $40.
Food-wise, the lineup includes Parma Street Food, Salt Meats Cheese, Nonna's Masseria, La Cucina Mobile, Abbiocco Food Truck, La Macelleria, Gerbino's, Don't Gnocc It, Porky's Porchetta and Mr Burger, so you'll be able to feast your way through pizza, burgs, gelato and more.
Capping things off, the joyful refrain of an accordion player will echo throughout the precinct, providing the soundtrack to the cries of "saluti!".
