Free entertainment starts at 6pm

Food and drinks will be on sale
We’re trying to reduce the impact on the environment, so this event will be free from polystyrene packaging and plastic items including balloons, bags and straws.
We encourage you to bring along your own reusable coffee cup, bag and water bottle but if you forget we will have the Wash against Waste trailer and their plates and cups to use
Amazing fireworks display at 9.15pm
We encourage pet owners to ensure their pets are kept safe and secure throughout the fireworks display or taken to an alternative place of refuge if they are sensitive to loud noises
Traffic management changes on the night
To ensure a safer traffic environment the local traffic conditions will be altered on this day:
- Findon Road between Ferres Boulevard and Civic Drive will be closed all day
- The speed limit around the Civic Centre precinct will be reduced to 40km/h
