MELBOURNE | Tuesday 29th October to Monday 4th November* 2013

This Week has races in the Spring Racing carnival and lead up to the 153rd running of the Melbourne Cup, not forgetting Thursday is Halloween (oooooo!).

It is also the start of the festival season with the Maldon Folk Festival, Melbourne Wooden Boat Festival and Wangaratta Jazz Festival all making a return in 2013.

Now I am not as artsy fartsy as Brett our regular editor, so I'm skipping art exhibitions in favour of Designing 007: Fifty Years of Bond opening at Melbourne Museum. How about Domestic Goddess Exhibition and Spectacle: The Music Video Exhibition at ACMI plus we must give a shout out for Movember | Grow a MO for Charity!

And finally, have a laugh or two with our Live Melbourne Stand Up Comedy guide.

Have a great week in Melbourne!

* the day before the 2013 Melbourne Cup - Tuesday 5th November 2013.
