Watch the spectacular New Year’s Eve fireworks from Tucker Park. The main fireworks at 9 pm allow our youngsters the chance to see a fantastic display lasting 8 minutes. Then at the stroke of midnight, we celebrate the start of the New Year with a dazzling 5 minute display.
Outback Hippies are back by popular demand to help us celebrate the New Year. For the kids, there’s dancing, singing, games and prizes to win, from 6 to 9 pm. Then it’s the adults’ turn, with the band’s special blend of rock, blues, roots and country through till midnight.
The kids can enjoy good old fashioned carnival fun at the Paterson Festival! Bounce, slide and climb on the jumping castle and slippery slide. Go for a spin on the chair-o-plane ride. Try your luck at the laughing clowns and the lucky dip. Get your face painted with a creative design.
