Where is it: Spencer Park, Newmarket
What's it all about: Brisbane's official Italian festival! It's a really popular celebration and a great way to experience Italian culture!

Tell me more: After having a sneak peek of the Sbandieratori Sansepolcro flagthrowers while they were practicing in the city, there was no chance of us missing the main event, Festitalia! Held at Spencer Park in Newmarket, there's heaps of room for all of the exhibits. Italians are known for their love of good food, and food stalls lined the perimeter of the ground. There were heaps of yummy and authentic options, and you could even sit in on an Italian food masterclass! Traditional Italian dance performances were held on the main stage, which was also the location of the international act, Sbandieratori Sansepolcro, whose flagthrowing performance had everyone entertained! A large area was set aside for children's activities, including a baby animal farm, lots of rides and activities and heaps of room to run around! We had a really nice time at this fun, family-friendly festival!

Zambrero's New Barbacoa Beef
Where is it: All over Australia!
What's it all about: Healthy (and very yummy!) Mexican fast food!
Tell me more: We love Mexican food and here in Brisbane we have some great choices for yummy and fresh Mexican flavours! And it's an exciting time for lovers of Mexican food lovers at the moment as Zambrero has just released a yummy new flavour! Their existing beef has been switched for a new Barbacoa Beef - slow cooked with Chipotle for 18 hours and it just melts in your mouth. So yummy! You can get this and many more flavours in burritos, tacos, nachos or even just a plate, combined with some fresh salad. They also have a fantastic program of 'Plate for Plate' where for every burrito or bowl sold, a meal is donated to someone in need. Such a great idea! Like Zambrero states, it's great food and a great cause all rolled into one!
Where is it: Newmarket Village, 95 Enogerra Road, Newmarket
How can I join in: Book online or purchase tickets at the cinema!
Tell me more: We went along to the Opening Night Party at Reading Cinemas Newmarket, a brand new and state of the art cinema! As you would expect from Reading Cinemas, the facilities are excellent - huge screens and the sound was superb! Such a lovely experience to be there for the opening night and we got to see a really sweet family movie - Coco (see our review here)!
With their 8 wall to wall screens, just watching a movie here really becomes an experience! In addition to their premium movie experiences of the Titan Luxe and Gold Lounge, they also have amazing value ticket prices as well as value packed combo deals, which means that you can top up with a little more at the fantastic Candy Bar! A really great cinema experience and a fun outing for families!
