The fun starts from 5pm on Sunday 31 January at Churchill Park with live entertainment, free children’s activities, rides and attractions including a performance from Aussie favourite Shannon Noll, supported by Rockingham’s own AC/DC tribute band Livewire. The evening will be capped by two spectacular firework displays at 9pm and midnight.
Mayor Barry Sammels invited all community members to come and celebrate at this family-friendly event, which is part of the City’s Summer Series of smoke-free and alcohol-free events. He said “The City’s New Year’s Eve celebrations always attract a great crowd - over 25,000 people in recent years – and offers a fantastic night out for the whole family”.
“It’s a great opportunity to come together and reflect on the year’s memorable moments and remember how fortunate we are to be living in such a beautiful region, with award-winning beaches, easy lifestyle, community events, excellent education, sports and recreational facilities.”
2017 marks the City’s 17th New Year’s Eve Celebration, with this year’s event made possible with the generous support of Lotterywest, Media Engine, Weekend Courier and Total Kooling Solutions.
