There will be fun for all, including skating on the oval, ECMA Award-winning band entertainers Razzamatazz, fireworks, an early New Year’s Eve countdown and music by DJ Skratch Bastid as well as the Telfer Band.

The “A” New Year’s Eve entertainment taking place in Grand Parade will be broadcast on site onto a big screen so those at the Oval can enjoy the traditional annual event as well.

Skating will run until midnight so skaters can welcome in the New Year on the “Big Ice” on the Common.

6:30 pm to 7:25 pm Children's Event - Razzamatazz
7:25 pm to 7:30 pm Fireworks
