SOAK UP THE SUN AT MONTECASINO’S SPIRIT OF SPRING FESTIVAL Celebrate the GOOD LIFE at Montecasino’s SPIRIT OF SPRING Festival! No more winter woolies and cozy fires – we’re heading outside on the last weekend of September where we can soak up the sun, enjoy freshly-prepared meals made from the finest local produce, and taste delicious cocktails while listening to live music. The festival includes plenty of exciting entertainment to keep the kids busy and happy while you browse through the latest summer fashions and accessories on our Piazza, attend a variety of spring-themed workshops, or simply relax over sundowners and long lazy meals at one of our outdoor eateries. This is the perfect opportunity to slow down, enjoy time with family and friends, and raise a toast to the last quarter of 2016. Because life should not only be lived, it should also be CELEBRATED!
