Revellers can expect another impressive fireworks display at tonight’s celebrations at the Mooroopna New Year’s Eve Festival.
Tonight’s free Mooroopna New Year’s Eve Festival is on track to be one of the biggest yet, despite a couple of changes to the event.
This year the festival will move to Mooroopna Recreation Reserve’s main oval, as John Gray Oval is being reseeded to prepare for the 2014 Country Week tennis competition.
The street parade and truck judging will not run this year, however they will return in 2013.
Mooroopna Rotary Club publicity director Ken Faulkner said this year’s festival would feature live bands, entertainment, several rides, stalls, games and a puppeteer, while Rex the Magician would rove through the crowd.
The annual fireworks spectacular is scheduled to follow the raffle draw for a Holden Cruze at 10.30
Mr Faulkner said there would be a wide variety of entertainment for festival-goers.
‘‘It’s always a good night, the entertainment is great and the atmosphere is great,’’ he said.
Mr Faulkner said the New Year’s Eve festival was a ‘‘great, safe, family place to come’’.
‘‘It’s a good way to start new year celebrations,’’ he said.
