Heads up, hot toddies. Melbourne’s getting an apres-ski festival this Saturday. It’s called the Winter Games, and it’s coming to you live, courtesy of the legends at Section 8.
What does that mean exactly?
Oh yeah, it gets better. Section 8 are encouraging everyone to rock up in “ugly sweatshirts” (which we’re pretty sure means daggy Christmas jumpers) and ski lycra. The ugliest jumper wins an ice sculpture and a meat tray, or possibly an ice sculpture in the shape of a meat tray. Either way, it'll be awesome. Entry is free and the frivolities kick off from 3pm. FYI: if you come dressed as Mr Plow the Melbourne City Council will probably erect a small statue in your honour. Just sayin’.
Where: Section 8, 27-29 Tattersalls Lane
When: Saturday 22 July,3pm – 1am

No doubt about it—Melbourne's turning it on this winter. Make sure you get along to the Gertrude St Projection Festival, pronto.
