The traditional Mooroopna Rotary Club New Year’s Eve Festival is promising to be as popular as ever tonight.

Thousands of families are expected to take part in the revelry, with bands, carnival attractions and fireworks set to ring in the new year.

A street procession, including Careful Cobber cars, will start at 7pm at Mooroopna Cenotaph on McLennan St and finish at Mooroopna Recreation Reserve’s John Gray Oval.

Local bands will play and a wide range of foods will be available. The car raffle will be drawn at 10.30pm, with the winner taking home a Holden Cruze, and the fireworks will follow soon after.

Mooroopna Rotary Club president Glenn Young said the event always drew a big crowd each year.

‘‘It’s a very relaxed family-friendly environment and it’s free,’’ he said.

‘‘It’s a huge night and the weather looks like it will be lovely. There’s usually thousands of people there.’’


The Mooroopna Rotary Club New Year’s Eve Festival will start at 6pm today at John Gray Oval at Mooroopna Recreation Reserve.
