The New Year’s Eve fireworks spectacular at Lake Nagambie is set to be bigger and better than ever, according to event organisers.
For the 2013 event, Nagambie Lakes Tourism and Commerce has secured the company who put together the spectacular display at Avenel’s 175th anniversary celebrations in October, meaning the display will be completely different from previous years.
Nagambie Lakes Tourism and Commerce president Jacqueline Brauman said the New Year’s Eve event was shaping up to be great way to end the year for families.
‘‘It will be a child and family friendly event held in a safe, accessible and picturesque spot,’’ she said.
Police and security will be on site to keep the event safe for everyone.
The fireworks display will begin at 10.30
Ms Brauman said there would be plenty of activities to keep families entertained, including jumping castles and face painting.
‘‘There’ll also a be a flyboarding demonstration at 6.30
Flyboarding, the latest watersports craze, can best be described as flying across the water on a snowboard-style board with an attached water jetpack.
New Year’s Eve festival attendees will also have the chance to win a flyboarding session with Midland Sports, with the winner drawn on the night for a lesson in 2014.
Funding for the event was sourced from a $1000 council quick grant, a $1000 community grant from the Bendigo Bank and community fundraising.
‘‘People need to get there early if they want close parking, because it fills up very quickly,’’ Ms Brauman said.
