Well it’s that time of year again and Nimbin is girding it’s loins for the impending Mardi Grass festival which is scheduled for first weekend in May.
This years event sees heaps of activities designed to keep the thousands of visitors to the town, on the streets and partying; while showing their support for Hemp Law Reform. The Kombi Konvoy kicks things off as usual, (we have great views of that here at Grey Gum Lodge ) and the Hemp Olympix, Million Marijuana March and Pickers and Harvest Balls all take place as usual. New events this year though include the Mullers and Packers Bong Relay, Pot Poetry, and Pot Art.
Grey Gum Lodge is particularly looking fiorward to the ‘Mind Candy’ debates at the Nimbin Town Hall and are privileged to host many of the key-note speakers while they stay in the town for the festival.
Last years Mardi Grass was vibrant, colourful, noisy, educational, hysterical and last but not least, peaceful. We’d like to thank everyone involved in the organisation of this years event and all the volunteers who work so hard through this event to communicate the importance of Hemp Law Reform!
