Thou­sands ush­ered in the new year at the an­nual fire­works dis­plays at Rock­ing­ham fore­shore. Fam­i­lies en­joyed the bright flashes at 9pm, while late- night rev­ellers rang in 2019 with a re­peat dis­play at mid­night.

Rock­ing­ham wel­comed 2019 in style with a spec­tac­u­lar evening of en­ter­tain­ment and fire­works at Churchill Park on De­cem­ber 31.

As part of the City of Rock­ing­ham’s sum­mer se­ries of free, fam­ily- friendly, smoke­free and al­co­hol- free events, thou­sands en­joyed live en­ter­tain­ment, free chil­dren’s ac­tiv­i­ties and a se­lec­tion of food ven­dors along Rock­ing­ham’s fore­shore.

Hit Factory, Ab­basalutely, LIVE WIRE and a range of local artists rocked on stage through­out the evening, which was capped off by fire­works dis­plays at 9pm and mid­night.

Mayor Barry Sam­mels thanked rev­ellers for en­joy­ing the evening re­spon­si­bly.

“The City’s New Year’s Eve cel­e­bra­tion has be­come a fan­tas­tic an­nual event that at­tracts thou­sands of vis­i­tors and I thank ev­ery­one who at­tended for en­joy­ing the night in a re­spon­si­ble man­ner,” Mr Sam­mels said.

“The event is a huge spectacle for our City and it was a plea­sure to see res­i­dents en­joy­ing the wa­ter­front dur­ing the Rock­ing­ham beach fore­shore re­vi­tal­i­sa­tion’s sum­mer break.”

“2019 is shap­ing up to be an­other ex­cit­ing year,” Mr Sam­mels said.
