Straya Day 2013

By johnboy - 18 January 2013 31

Andrew Barr is letting us all know about the bread and circuses being doled our way for Australia Day:

In Canberra’s Centenary year, Australia Day 2013 has particular significance, providing a great opportunity for our community to celebrate how far our city has come over the past 100 years, and its significance to the shaping of our nation.

Featuring a diverse range of events held across Canberra, the 2013 program has been developed in close association with the National Australia Day Council and local community groups.

Celebrations begin on Friday 25 January with the Australia Day Race Day at Thoroughbred Park.
Also on Australia Day eve, the Australian of the Year awards will be announced at the Parliament House lawns, followed by the popular Australia Celebrates Live concert featuring Jimmy Barnes, Guy Sebastian, The Presets and Timomatic.

On Australia Day there will be a Great Aussie Day Breakfast in Commonwealth Park, presented by ActewAGL and Fyshwick Fresh Food Markets. There will also be free entertainment by Peppa Pig for the kids and Los Chavos, plus rides, jumping castles, face painting and family games. There will be a Flag Raising Ceremony at Rond Terrace, a fly over and 21 Gun Salute, as well as an Australian Citizenship Ceremony.

As the sun sets on Australia Day 2013, make your way to Regatta Point or the lawns of the National Library of Australia and enjoy the Australia Day Fireworks Spectacular, which begins with activities on the lake including dragon boating and rowing.

For those who haven’t been the fireworks are usually quite good.

I can’t speak for Peppa Pig.

While we’re here let’s take a trip down memory lane with this (Language warning)

I’m a Peppa Pig fan, as is my son. It is pretty funny actually, but think it might be ruined by an in-person (pig?) showing. Glad we won’t be in Canberra to have to go and see that one.

Trouble with the straya day video is that no one plays league on staya day. Should have been cricket. Duh.

Also, the youtube comments make me worried about the youf of today

Whats on at the beach on straya day, since lots of us will be there? Eating snitz at the club while restocking the pokies

Due to circumstances beyond my control, and to my utter disbelief, I’m doing that most Australian of things on Australia Day, and heading off to Bali. Given that this act actually featured in that brilliant vid, I fear that my coefficient of boganosity which I normally like to keep around zero, has redlined.

Don’t forget your thongs, Singha beer tank top and cheap sombrero.

Peppa Pig? Oh my, the ACT muslim advisory council won’t like that at all. Will there be hallal meat at the great Aussie day breakfast and shouldn’t it be flags raising as the Torres Strait islanders and aboriginies won’t enjoy the occupation flag being raised alone.

To be truly bogan in Bali you’d need to sit yourself down to watch the cricket with a stubby of VB.

Peppa Pig looks like a Picasso. Make a comparison:

Tell me I’m wrong and I’ll have to glass you. Hope that makes me properly Strayan. Somehow I don’t think I’ve got the hang of it…
