DIY Wotz On Guide for 19-21 March

RiotPost 20 March 2010 10

Another weekend is finally here, and there are so many choices on what to do while the weather stays warm but not too hot, which will be a benefit to those attending the World Naked Bike Ride this Sunday. Body painting starts at 10.30 with the ride starting at 12 (details here).

Plus on Saturday night Fyshwick will be using up its stockpile of fireworks that are now banned to all us plebs in the bread and circus’ that is Skyfire 2010. We all know the deal, find a nice place to view the Lake and then hold that spot all day, once the fireworks go off, make mad scramble for the car to beat the traffic out. Wouldn’t miss it.

But if you is upto something better than big bangs and naked bodies, then let us know in the comments.
