Thousands expected to help bring in New Year with Council


From live music acts and performances for children through to two spectacular fireworks displays, Council’s official New Year’s Eve celebration offers something for all ages to help bring in the New Year.

Based at Nowingi Place, the free community event kicks off at 7pm on Tuesday 31 December with a packed program of entertainment.

For children there will be two live shows, featuring Bob the Builder and The Octonauts.

There will also be jumping castles, food trucks and our Water Play Park will be operating until midnight, providing a chance for everyone to cool off between performances.

Live music fans will have plenty to keep them entertained throughout the night with performances from Revive, Iwan & Andrea, Just Us and Jett Charman.

The first of two fireworks displays will take place at 9.25pm followed by the finale as the clock strikes midnight, welcoming in 2020.

Mildura Mayor Simon Clemence said Council’s New Year’s Eve celebration was one of the biggest community events of the year.

“Year in, year out, thousands of residents and visitors join together to bring in the New Year at our community celebration and it makes for a great family atmosphere,” Cr Clemence said.

“It provides a safe atmosphere for a broad range of ages, as well as the flexibility for our community to enjoy the night as they wish. Whether it be sitting down on a picnic rug or bringing a chair and enjoying their own drinks and nibbles, or taking advantage of the various food and drink stalls on the night, there are plenty of options.”

Council’s New Year’s Eve event is also smoke, alcohol and glass-free.
