Facebook has word on a program of parties planned at local shops around Canberra in March for the centenary:
On 12 March 2013, Parties at the Shops events will be held all over Canberra to celebrate the city’s 100th birthday. Come and party with your neighbours!
We’re pretty sure that Canberra must be the only city in the world where you have to have road signs that point to the SHOPS, because otherwise you’d never find them, secluded as they are in our leafy avenues.
Canberra’s suburban shops are a unique part of the city’s landscape. Each has its own personality, local characters and resident community groups and artists. Canberra’s shops deserve to be celebrated.
Events will be held all over Canberra on Tuesday 12 March (and a few on other dates). All event dates will be listed on this page and on the Centenary of Canberra website: www.canberra100.com.au. You’re invited to wander down to any of the Parties at the Shops events and celebrate Canberra’s big hundred with your family and neighbours.
ARTISTS AND SHOP OWNERS
