Park a new year fun hub

Albany Advertiser - - NEWS - Shan­non Smith

The year will go out with a bang, fire­works and all, at the City of Al­bany’s New Year’s Eve Pic­nic and Fire­works at Anzac Peace Park.

On Mon­day, De­cem­ber 31, the park will be­come a hub of en­ter­tain­ment and ac­tiv­i­ties for the en­tire fam­ily, with plenty of room to set up for the evening.

This year in­cludes the in­au­gu­ral yacht club bal­let, where mem­bers of the Princess Royal Yacht Club will light up their ves­sels in the har­bour.

A nine-hole mini-golf course, Jamie the Clown, DJ Nathan Young and Gertrude, gi­ant lawn games and a photo booth from ACE Cam­era Club make the park the place to wel­come in 2019.

City of Al­bany chief ex­ec­u­tive An­drew Sharpe en­cour­aged ev­ery­one to gather to­gether with a pic­nic and make their way down to the park.

“The New Year’s Eve fire­works event is al­ways a safe, fam­ily-friendly event,” Mr Sharpe said.

“This past year has been a fan­tas­tic year for Al­bany and I’m look­ing for­ward to cel­e­brat­ing the year with the com­mu­nity.”

The fun kicks off from 4pm, with the yacht bal­let start­ing at 8pm. Fire­works will fol­low at 9pm and mid­night.

The evening is proudly sup­ported by Ac­tBe­long-Com­mit, Health­way, Lot­tery­west, Al­bany Ad­ver­tiser South­ern Ports Author­ity,
