1. Canberra's got the Summernats!

Hopefully Chic Henry will take the festival of out of town bogans, hoons and misogyny somewhere else, coz it's yuck, though not as bad since they shut down the street cruise and tried to confine the morons to Exhibition Park...

Summernats car festival: Canberrans vent frustrations about noise, sexual harassment on social media

Canberrans have taken to social media to vent their frustrations about the Summernats 2015 car festival, describing noise pollution, sexual harassment and anti-social behaviour from patrons.

But despite numerous negative comments online, members of a nearby residents association said they had little to complain about following this year's event, which wrapped up on Sunday afternoon.

Featuring burnout competitions, cruising events, fireworks and the Miss Summernats beauty competition, the annual four-day festival was expected to attract about 100,000 car-loving petrolheads to Exhibition Park in Canberra's north.

Police and the ACT Government have been broadly supportive of the car show throughout this year's event.

But on Twitter many in Canberra were less than impressed.

I guess the closest thing we've got to Vivid is Enlighten, which happened in March...
