Skate and Waterskiing competition events take centerstage at this year's Moomba Festival.
Skate event highlights include the MGP Moomba Pro, Moomba BMX Competition and Vans Drop Ya Hammers – best trick contest. In addition to these competition events, there will also be Learn2Ride Skateboard Clinics and Learn2Ride BMX Clinics.
The Birdman Rally is a Moomba Festival favourite. You can catch this family friendly event on the Yarra River, between Princes and Swan Street Bridges on Sunday 11 March.
The Moomba Parade is another key festival favourite, which will be held on Monday 12 March, the final day of the festival. The parade has a new location - St Kilda Road and there will be numerous floats, community groups and performers participating in this annual event. You will also get see the 2012 King and Queen of Moomba; Harry Kewell and Natalie Bassingthwaighte.
There is also the Moomba Carnival and fireworks displays from 9:30pm on each night of the festival.
this sounds great with all the fun and excitement of moomba but if you are going out to watch the parade is there going to be somewhere people can go and get some lunch during the moomba festivities and enjoy some of the different ranges of food there is to offer or do we have to bring our own lunch not only to the parade but to all of the moomba festivities.
