His Chieflyness Jon Stanhope has declared the party started for the Canberra Festival running from March 7 to 15.
Apparently ex-Idol Jessica Mauboy is a “Canberra favourite” and will join Kate Miller-Heidke, the aged Hoodoo Gurus, and Dora the Explorer for Celebrate In The Park. (We note that a line-up celebrating Canberra’s birthday has been kept free of local content).
The good news is that the popular Balloon Spectacular is kicking off from this Saturday 7 March to Sunday 15 March.
Early risers can get down to the lawns of Old Parliament House every morning at 6.30am, or you can just wait for something magical to snort its way over your head.
