Alstonville set for New Year’s Eve
LOOKING for a fun way to see in the New Year with your family?
New Year’s Eve will be celebrated with a bang at the Alstonville Apex-Lions New Year’s Eve Family Festival to be held at Alstonville Showground.
Families looking for a fun and relaxed way to celebrate New Year’s Eve can come along and celebrate in an alcohol-free environment.
The popular community event offers rides for all ages, fantastic food, entertainment, treasure hunt, competitions, prizes and, of course, fireworks.
A feature of this year’s festival is the Pantomime, Rover McWolf and the Case of the Missing Cupcake which starts at 6.30pm.
This very funny ‘panto’ will delight small children and is a perfect start to the evening’s entertainment.
Entry is an affordable $2 per person, with proceeds going towards the cost of staging the event.
Gates open at 5pm, with the festival finishing around 10pm.
Fireworks are at 9pm.
In keeping with the fun family atmosphere, the event is alcohol-free, with mandatory bag checks undertaken at the entrance gates.
One of the great advantages of holding the festival at the Alstonville Showground is that it is an all-weather venue.
That means the celebration will go ahead rain, hail or shine.
There is also loads of parking and plenty of great food to feed the family and give mum a break!
The Ballina Shire Council has provided $14,000 to fund the event, which is solely run by volunteers.
In addition local sponsors of the event include LJ Hooker Real Estate, the Federal Hotel, Optus World Lismore and Clearsight Optometry, who provide funding for competition prizes.
