New Years Eve 2020 - Event Update and Road Closures

It’s on!!! Slightly cut down, but the show is going on!!

There will only be one fireworks display. The display will be on at midnight for 7 minutes. Vantage points for the fireworks will only be open to frontline workers.

This is a great opportunity to pick up some more work as the merrymakers will be travelling to and from the celebration. As there will be no food providers available at the vantage points there will be movement between cafes/restaurants and the viewing sites.
