If you’re not festivaled out here comes the Canberra Festival

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 Canberra Festival 2009 page has a range of activities including the Canberra Lapidary Club holding an open day, and another carp-whacking day.

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.

What’s Your opinion?

I just drove into Merimbula to do some shopping and the place if full of ACT number plates. Is anyone left in Canberra? Yesterday I was in Bateman’s Bay and the same applied there but that’s to be expected.

Does Canberra have an AC/DC, “Hilltop Hoods” or “The Presets” equivalent?

Hilltop Hoods? Gimmie a break!!!

I couldn’t think of a really big aussie band that fits that genre

The RSPCA are hypocritical that they are not making a noise and protesting over the Canberra Carp Out event.

There will be hundreds of people hooking these poor “sea kittens” – http://encyclopediadramatica.com/Sea_Kittens on barbed hooks and letting them die either by bashing their heads or suffocating them out of the water.

STOP the cruelty – save the Sea Kittens!

I am saving them. I’ll be nailing them to tree’s to enjoy later.
