I am a world traveller & a mom of two, (8 & 6). I love to meet people, and am fascinated that there are 7 billion stories out there to be explored. I think Melbourne is the most happening city to live in with all the fun activities around town.
Have you been to a Monster Jam?

This article entitled Monster Jam, is about a different kind of jam. Classified as "family entertainment", the real stars of this Monster Jam show are on 4 wheels, 4 meters tall and weigh 5 tons
Yes, you have guessed it, the performers on this jam are "Monster Trucks", vehicles which may or may not be trucks, fitted with giant wheels and suspension. Millions of fans around the world enjoy these adrenalin-pumping and exhilarating shows around the world, and now, Australian residents will have the opportunity to do so in the following cities:

The shows promise a "freestyle" event where these monster trucks are required to drive over obstacles which test their physical abilities to the limits. Moreover, the performance of the trucks is judged on several criteria. In addition to the freestyle event, there is plenty of other entertainment throughout the evening.
