IT'S TIME to get all shook up and dance like a hound dog for what is tipped to be one of the biggest and best weekends in Cooma.
It will be a celebration like no other as Cooma hosts its Feast of Festivals weekend.
There is sure to be something for everyone.
For the revheads there is the Cooma Car Club's largest bi-annual event the Motorfest at the Cooma Showground. There will be eveything from hot rods, street machines to tractors, stationary engines, boats and a military display.
If you prefer two wheels to four, the annual Snowy Ride will be passing through town from Friday.
Now in its 13th year, the event raises funds for the Steven Walter Foundation, for childhood cancer research.
It is on track to attract 3,000 registrations once again this year.
If theatre and the arts is more your thing then there is the Cooma Little Theatre's presentation of the pantomime 'Once upon a witch' on Friday and Saturday night.
A Feast of Poetry is celebrating 10 years this year and will be held at the grounds of the Raglan Gallery and Cultural Centre on Saturday. There is the Monaro Stitcher's Quilt and Craft Fair at Cooma Public School New Hall also on Saturday and Sunday.
Or you can sit back, relax and enjoy Cooma's very own X-Factor contestant Vendulka belting out some tunes at the Cooma Ex-Services Club on Friday night to raise money for the Monaro Committee for Cancer Research with the Harmonies for Hope Concert.
St Patrick's Parish School is holding its Bazaar Fair in Centennial Park on Saturday where there will be stalls, games, a jumping castle, food, coffee, show bags and a barbecue.
Gardening enthusiasts can enjoy St Paul's Anglican Church Garden Day with four open gardens of parishioners in Cooma from 12.30 to 4pm on Sunday.
To top it off, across the whole weekend there is the second annual Australian National Busking Championships.
Performers will be busking across Cooma and vying for the title of Australia's National Busking Champion. The finals concert will be held in Centennial Park on Sunday at 3pm.
Organiser Allan Spencer is hoping to have about 100 buskers performing across the two day event. They will come from Bega, Candelo, Canberra, Wollongong and Sydney. And there will also be some home grown Cooma talent on show.
There will be all types of music on offer from rock n' roll and jazz to country and folk being performed by musicians from 7-years-old to 70-years-old.
