DIY Wotz on guide for the weekend of 6 March

By johnboy - 6 March 2009 20

A lot of us are still getting over last weekend and wouldn’t mind a few more nice calm work days before the carnage resumes.

But it seems there’s no provision for extra public workdays, much as employer groups have been lobbying for them.

Moving on, what’s worth getting out to see and do over the weekend around this wonderful autumnal city?

What’s Your opinion?

This weekend marks the start of the Canberra Festival (7-15 March)

The highlight of this weekend is Celebrate in the Park which is going to be held at Stage 88 between 2pm and 9:30pm on Monday. Headline acts are Jessica Mauboy (5:50pm), Kate Miller-Heidke (6:50pm) and the Hoodoo Gurus (8pm).

The Canberra Festival Balloon Spectacular also kicks off on Saturday, and will continue each morning (6:15am for balloon inflation) until the 15th.

On Saturday you could head north ~100km to Crookwell for the Crookwell Country Festival.

Films at Twilight will be featuring Kung Fu Panda for all those Jack Black fans. 8:15pm Saturday at Garema Pl, BYO Chair.

On Sunday you could check out the Queanbeyan Multicultural Festival which will be held at Queanbeyan Park (Lowe St) between 10 and 2.

Pedal Power is presenting the Big Canberra Bike Ride on Monday. It’s a 15 or 25km ride starting at Rond Terraces (on Lake Burley Griffin at the end of Anzac Pde). Entry is $5 for 12-17 year olds, $20 for adults. Registrations on the day need to be complete by 8:15 for a 8:30am start

The ANU Film Group has, as usual, a packed program. Friday night (8pm) has the double feature ‘Death Race’ followed by ‘The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor’. Saturday (6pm) is ‘Bolt’, followed at 8pm by ‘Doubt’.

Sounds like a great weekend, hope you have fun!
