Tent + Horse
The Junction Arts Festival is held in Launceston every August, and features a variety of live music, performance, and assorted artistic goings-on. It seems to be going quite well, and most people are keen to see it continue indefinitely - Launceston does suffer a little from a lack of things to do of an evening, especially during winter. The main hub of the festival is the Junc Room, a circus tent erected in Civic Square where a lot of the performance stuff happens.
The horse suspended from the ceiling is a sort of (tongue-in-cheek) local celebrity - it's almost always on display at a horse-goods store by a busy suburban intersection, but in recent years it seems to have found itself turning up at all sorts of events.
