Newsletter | #181 | What's On this WeekWelcome to this week's Melbourne events, exhibitions, sports and community guide for Tuesday June 22 to Monday June 28, 2010.

This week... there's magic in the air with Northcote pulling the Melbourne Magic Festival out of its proverbial hat, marking a fine entry into the upcoming School Holidays. With a great line up of events to entertain the kidlets, there's the Kilmore Celtic Festival held further afield for that weekend out of town, along with the hugely successful Fun4Kids Festival held in Warrnambool.

Those who'd rather stick closer to their little patch of Melbourne, might want to take the kids to Cheltenham where two circuses are currently residing. I'm sure there's a valuable life lesson in there somewhere while watching rival clowns duke it out, probably the same lesson one learns watching Parliament Question Time.

Trivia


Is That An Overturned Tram In Your Pocket..?


When Victorian Police went on strike in 1923, many of the volunteer "Special Constables"who were appointed to maintain order during the riots which took place had ironically been involved in an earlier riot of 1919 when they had invaded the offices of the Victorian Premier, using an inkstand to assault the very same man who would later appoint them as officers of the law, clearly under duress.

Looting and rioting was so severe that trams were even overturned, and while much of the chaos and theft was attributed by many of Australia's newspapers to Melbourne's criminal element, with Squizzy Taylor bearing a lot of that brunt, court records would later show that most offenders who were apprehended during the riots were in fact young men and boys who had no previous histories of crime.
