Dazzling display to fire up revellers

A DAZZLING display of fireworks will see this New Year’s celebration at Aurora Stadium go off with a bang, but it will not be the only attraction to keep attendees amused. Coyote Special Events director Rick Marton said revellers would be spoiled for choice when it came to entertainment and food. He expected people would particularly enjoy Melbourne cover band Chunky Jam, who will rock the stage after the first fireworks display at 9.30pm.

“Because there is so much more happening this year we have also set up an information booth for patrons to ask directions or look at a map of the grounds,” he said.

“The event has choices for every age group and we’re keen for it to appeal to everyone in Launceston and surrounding areas.”

On the night there will be a range of international cuisine, icecreams and hot buttered popcorn available, and bar outlets serving beer, wine and spirits all night long.

Mr Marton reminded parents that children under 12 were allowed into the event only if they were accompanied by an adult.

“We have plenty of security to ensure the safety of all patrons but we can’t allow children of that age to be unattended,” he said.

People could also see the New Year in with a winning streak with three competitions running on the night.

The Cityprom Hidden Treasure competition gives people the chance to win $50 for those who find gold medallions which are hidden randomly around the stadium, and there are two chances to win a holiday for two to Noosa and a special pack from BigPond by texting the secret code given on the night.

The secret code will also give people a chance to go into the draw for a notebook computer if they go into any Bigpond dealer and sign up for BigPond broadband and Internet connection during January.
