Bass Coast,

Family Friendly Fun On New Year’s Eve

New Year’s Eve in Bass Coast will once again be lit up with fireworks displays at Coronet Bay and Inverloch at the family friendly time of 9.30pm.

Bass Coast Shire Council Mayor, Cr Kimberley Brown, said the fireworks displays were very popular for residents and visitors alike.

“These are great events for families,” Cr Brown said.

“There will be family activities, entertainment and a barbeque at the foreshore before the fireworks in Coronet Bay.

“At the Inverloch Recreation Reserve, the carnival will be in full swing before the fireworks display at 9.30pm.

Cr Brown said both these events are designed to help families see in the New Year.

“We want these to be events that families can come to and enjoy,” Cr Brown said.

Cr Brown said once again, Cowes will be celebrating New Year’s Eve with its Carnivale.

“Thompson Avenue and The Esplanade will be closed to vehicular traffic on 31 December from 8.30am until 10.30pm,” Cr Brown said.

“A street festival which will include stalls, buskers, family entertainment and carnival rides will take place between 9.30 am and 9.30 pm.”

There won’t be any fireworks on New Year’s Eve in Cowes this year, nor will there be midnight fireworks at any local in Bass Coast.

Cr Brown reminded people that fireworks are dangerous and illegal for private persons to discharge.

“If you see or hear fireworks being let off, please report the incident to Police, by ringing 000.”
