Fireworks will light up Goolwa’s skies at midnight on New Year’s Eve to bring in 2018.
After the success of the display in 2015, and taking a break in 2016, the public is invited to set up picnic rugs at the wharf precinct and enjoy the fireworks which are launched off the bridge.
The Goolwa Fireworks Committee, led by co-coordinators Karen Ross and Liz Livingstone, is grateful to have the support of many local businesses and Alexandrina Council to ensure the event goes ahead.
“It’s something exciting to do on New Year’s Eve in Goolwa,” Ms Ross said. “We know Victor Harbor has a spectacular fireworks display but we wanted something local.”
Alex FM will be doing a simulcast, with the fireworks going off to music – something which didn’t occur in 2015.
The wharf precinct will be a dry zone, but local cafes, bars and restaurants will host special functions leading up to midnight.
The bridge will be closed for an hour from 11.30pm on December 31 to allow for the pyrotechnics set up and pack up. Boats will be restricted from entering the four-knot zone around the bridge at those same times.
A photo competition will also run on Facebook.
