Yeah, I will miss Avalon yet again - but hopefully if I get organised it will happen next year.

It's on this Sunday at Wentworth park near the Uni on Parramatta Road.
Lot's of People will be at Fair Day, I *always* run into someone I haven't seen in years and years. If you want to meet up there send me an e-mail - I will be with other gay spotters and the dog.
From the web site:
"""Fair Day is a much loved event of the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras season which attracts more than 60,000 people to Victoria Park.
Hundreds of commercial and community stalls will be offering food and drinks,
fun activities, information and products. A number of activities are planned to
keep kids entertained with special fun areas.
Crowd pleasers like Doggywood's dog shows, the Miss and Mr Fair Day pageants will be highlights of the day. Roving entertainers including classical musicians will move throughout the park and a big line-up of entertainment is planned for the two main stages. The Scooter Stage and the Lounge Tent will be popular spots.
Everything from ballroom dancing and flamenco dancing to aerobics and self
defence will be on display and there will be lots of audience participation.
Fashion police will be on hand to keep everyone on their toes so make sure you slip, slop and slap in style for the day.
(BTW - Added by me - Slip, Slop & Slap is a national skin cancer campaign - slip on a shirt - slop on some sunscreen and slap on a hat.. Nothing dirty.. lol)
The Route 69 bus service will again run between Oxford Street and Victoria Park throughout the day.

Good to know that Sydney Buses (State Transit) has a sense of humor - note the Bus Route Number "69" LOL
The dog show is a hoot - you get allsorts as you could imagine - one year I saw a 6'2" tall drag queen with a beard and a toy poodle in platform shoes and a hideous outfit! Which one is the dog indeed!
