Celebrate the new year with us at this family-friendly, alcohol-free event.

Live music, roving performers, face painting, amusement rides, and food and novelty stalls provide a lively atmosphere in the lead-up to our fireworks spectacular at 9pm.

A huge thanks to our naming rights sponsor for this event, Acorn Lawyers!


We'd also like to thank our corporate sponsor for New Year's Eve, South Coast BMW
