Buongiorno! We recently enjoyed Brisbane's Italian Festival at Spencer Park, Newmarket. It was jam-packed with activities and interests for all ages. Honestly, who could say no to a gelato eating contest? Or a cannoli one, for that matter (and the fastest cannolo eater wins a dozen cannoli)? Or watching a master acrobatic pizzaiolo in action? Some personal highlights were the salted coconut and mango gelato (if you find yourself in Rosalie, check Gelateria Cremona out) and the baby animal pen (we might have gone back twice!). Oh, and the things we haven't mentioned yet are the flagthrowing exhibitions, tarantella dancers, gladiator chariots, parasol painting... in short, if you haven't been before, don't miss out next year!
