AUSTRALIAN GARDEN SHOW SYDNEY
Celebrating Australia's love of gardens and the beginning of spring, the Australian Garden Show will uniquely showcase gardening techniques and spectacular displays with the goal of bringing out the green thumb in all of us. Held over four days in beautiful Centennial Park, the event is aimed at a wide range of gardeners, whether you can only grow succulents or are a true horticulturist.
SYDNEY ROLLER DERBY
Are you roller derby fans ready? Round 2 of Sydney Roller Derby League's home season is upon us. This Saturday night, two rounds will be held in Luna Park's Big Top as part of a double header aimed at showcasing the big hits and high energy this crazy sport has to offer. With a discount on Luna Park rides for every derby ticket purchased (yay!), make sure you grab a trackside ticket so you don't miss out on any of the action.
ZOMBIE PROM 1986
The Vanguard presents their third annual Zombie Prom, a night dead-icated to Shermer High School's graduating class of 1986, who all died in a tragic accident. Returning from the dead for one night only, step back into the 80s as The Vanguard encourages fake blood, ridiculous perms and overstated shoulder pads with a Zombie Prom King and Queen crowned before the night is over.
