Phone 132 849 or visit www.ticketek.com.au or www.yogabbagabba.com.au DJ Lance from Yo Gabba Gabba! The live stage show is coming to Sydney Olympic Park. IT'S going to be the hottest ticket in town -- for the under fours. Yes, Yo Gabba Gabba!, the live stage show, is coming to Sydney Olympic Park. For those who've never heard of it, Yo Gabba Gabba! is the No.1 TV show for kids under four across all Australian free-to-air networks. It has become such a cult hit across the world that celebrities such as Jack Black and Elijah Wood and bands like the Ting Tings have made guest appearances. The live show features all the characters from the TV series, including DJ Lance Rock, Brobee (the little green one) and Foofa (the pink flower bubble), plus some secret Australian celebrity guests. The show's American creators, Christian Jacobs and Scott Schultz, felt Australia was the perfect place to premiere the live show. ''Our fans Down Under have been so positive about Yo Gabba Gabba! that we thought Australia was the perfect place for our first tour,'' Jacobs said. Their personal experiences as parents have served as the inspiration behind popular songs like Don't Bite Your Friends and There's a Party in My Tummy. After Schultz's three-year-old refused to eat his carrots, Schultz persuaded him that the other food he'd eaten was hosting a party in his stomach and that the carrots were missing out on the fun. From there they wrote there's There's a Party in My Tummy and the Yo Gabba Gabba! phenomenon was born. ABC1 and ABC2 will air season two of Yo Gabba Gabba! in July this year. When too much tea is barely enough TEA aficionados have been invited to Bay Day -- a free festival celebrating the wonderful world of tea. It will be held at McIIwaine Park in Rhodes on Sunday from noon to 4pm. Bay Day will feature a range of entertainment, including Chinese lion dancing, gypsy and jazz music and a string of market stalls selling all things tea. Patrons are invited to relax in the tea tent, where tea leaf readings will be taken, or take a stroll through the tea garden and experience a traditional Chinese tea ceremony. Kids can join in the fun of the Mad Hatter's Tea Party and enjoy rides, entertainment and activities especially for them. Food and free parking will be available. Visit the Canada Bay Council website at www.canadabay.nsw.gov.au What would mum say about this exhibition? WHAT Would Your Mother Say!, a fashion exhibition developed by Canada Bay women, is coming to Concord library.

The exhibition continues until May 3 during library hours. Riparian delights with an Italian flavour HOW does an entertaining afternoon by the water complete with Italian music, homemade gnocchi, gelato, cakes and coffee sound?
