Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Killer Crocs!

When I was 18, to rebel against the world my parents had created, I shaved a half Mohawk, encouraged my hair to stand on end, grew my armpit hair, wore torn black rags, too much eyeliner and wore 18-hole Dr. Martens boots.

The annual Federal Park Party is on Saturday November 2, and sees the return for the third time of ‘Sculpture by the Tree’, a one-day sculpture exhibition held  in Federal Park.

Sydney-based sculptor and painter Geoff Harvey will be judging the exhibition, and the winning sculpture will be installed among the park’s growing collection.

There will be artisan stalls, food, music and lots of kids’ activities, including a busking competition with prizes, and Jai Lewin will coach and demonstrate skateboarding.
