Event: Bella Italia Street Party, Albert Avenue, Bray (just off Bray Seafront, next to the Campo de Fiori restaurant)
Time: from 7pm to 10pm Tuesday 12th July 2011
Bray has been entertained by all things Italian since longer than we can remember. From the street performers of the 1800s to Morellis icecream on the promenade in the 1930s, from the fish-and-chip institution that is Cassoni’s to the more recent arrivals from Italy like Campo de Fiori and Diva bringing us their fine wines and delicious regional foods.
Genuine Italian coffee shops abound in Bray, and today thanks to Palermo’s Gelateria ‘Italian Icecream on the Esplanade’ is to Bray what it is to Napoli’s Via Caracciolo.
So no surprise really that we are having an Italian Street Party. There will be live music, an Italian street market, a big Pasta Eating Competition, wines, food-tasting and lots and lots of fun. All against the ‘bella vista’ background of Bray Seafront and its Summerfest funfair.
