Fireworks ready for new year at Allora Showgrounds

ALLORA residents are in for a big night of fireworks and fun this New Year's Eve.

Sponsored by GrainX Australia the annual New Year's Eve Family Night will be held at the Allora Showgrounds.

Run by the Allora Show Society, the annual night of fireworks and family fun has attracted big numbers to the showgrounds each year.

Organiser Ted Cowley said the kids activities would get under way from 5.30pm.

"We will have plenty of games for the kids set up in the arena," he said.

There will also be a jumping castle, snow cones, a slippery slide and a disco to help the kids bring in the New Year.

"We also have a big movie screen set up at the pavilion and will be showing a couple of movies throughout the night," Mr Cowley said.

"It will just be a big fun family night out."

The fireworks display, sponsored by Chris Hood of GrainX, will light up the sky at 8.30pm.

Mr Cowley said the light show would last 12 to 15 minutes.

There will be lots of entertainment acts including Clare Cowley performing as Planet Clare and popular local band Wild Spurs to keep the crowd amused during the barbecue dinner.

Camping will be available for the night with breakfast available in the morning.
