New Year’s Eve Family Picnic & Fireworks 2019

When: Tuesday, 31st December 2019

Where: ANZAC Peace Park

Times: Festival 5 - 9pm, Fireworks Displays 9pm & Midnight

New Year’s Eve is an important time of celebration for everyone. Combine this with the universal nature of fireworks and you have an event that attracts multigenerational and multi-cultural participation. Held in the Anzac Peace Park, family members and friends are able to join together to share in the passing of one year and the welcoming of another.

The action all starts from 5pm where families and friends are invited to participate in interactive activities, enjoy local live music, grab a bite to eat and/or just to gather with a picnic to relax and celebrate with their loved ones.

There are two separate fireworks displays, 9pm and midnight. The 9pm display gives families with young children and senior members the chance enjoy a skyshow without waiting up for the traditional midnight display. The traditional midnight fireworks are a highlight and enjoyed by many from various locations around Albany.
