In Melbourne we have a big festival on the Labour Day Long weekend, in March,called Moomba.
It celebrates cultures and characters of Melbourne.
There is a King and Queen of Moomba who ride on a big Float in the Parade.
There are many clowns dancers and floats in the parade.
There is a skiing competition on the Yarra river and a Birdman rally where people try to fly the furthest in home made wings, planes or flying contraptions over the Yarra River. The rally is very funny.
When I was young we were told that moomba is an Aboriginal word meaning "To get together and have fun"
There is a big carnival also and it lasts for 3 days. I have attached a website for you to find out even more.
