Bored in Byron Bay this weekend??

If you’re craving a hit of relaxation and vibration of the room, body and mind after a busy week in class – The Dream Drone is coming to Bangalow A&I Hall on Friday. What is a Dream Drone, you might ask?! It’s a session of ‘re-balancing your vital energy’ by lying on the floor under your blanket whilst someone plays didgeridoo – ‘used in its capacity to create the primordial vibration, a sound that has no rhythm or melodic hook lines, that participants can feel as a vibration moving inside the room, the body and the mind’ Tickets are $35 at the door and the show starts at 8.30pm – bring a mat and a blanket!

The Mullumbimby Show runs over this weekend – Saturday and Sunday – entry is $10 per day. There will be reptile shows, sheep shearing demos (yes), Spaghetti Circus, tap dancers, a bee-keeping demo, a truck parade, fireworks, barbecues, a Demolition Derby and A PIE EATING COMPETITION!!!! I am devastated that I’m not there to shear sheep and eat pies.

The Relentless Tour in aid of Sea Shepherd Australia hits the Brunswick Hotel on Saturday – an all day event from 2pm featuring local bands and a presentation by Peter Hammarstedt, captain of the Sea Shepherd ship M/Y Bob Barker. Entry by gold coin donation!

Fancy learning to hula?! Kawika Foster of ‘Mana O Kahiko’, from Molokai in Hawaii is offering intensive hula training this Saturday and Sunday from 10am until 2pm on the Byron Arts and Industry Estate. You must book!! Call Kathryn Roberts on 0407 877 309, or email her on krobertsau@yahoo.com.au
