Don't miss fireworks display on New Year's Eve
The City of Greater Bendigo will once again present an early fireworks display at 9.15pm on New Year’s Eve, in addition to the traditional fireworks at midnight to celebrate the start of 2018.
City of Greater Bendigo Tourism and Major Events Manager Terry Karamaloudis said it was a tradition to welcome in the New Year with fireworks and Bendigo’s annual New Year’s Eve fireworks display was enjoyed by hundreds of people.
“The City is once again pleased to present the two fireworks displays from the Rosalind Park poppet head and I encourage residents to gather at various vantage points around the CBD to enjoy the display,” Mr Karamaloudis said.
“To allow the fireworks to take place safely, there will be an 85 metre exclusion zone surrounding the Rosalind Park tower and the car park off Gaol Road will be closed from 6am Sunday December 31, 2017 until approximately 9am Monday January 1, 2018.
“While we all love fireworks, the noise they make can often frighten animals, so I would like to remind residents to make sure that their pets are securely confined on New Year’s Eve.”
The City’s local laws prohibit the consumption of alcohol in public places within the CBD without an appropriate liquor licence. The proclaimed area is bound by Don/Myrtle Streets, Barnard Street, Water/Baxter Streets and Bramble/Mundy/McLaren Streets.
The fireworks displays will be cancelled if a Total Fire Ban is declared on Sunday December 31.
