There will be a family friendly feel on the Foreshore this New Year’s Eve with activities, entertainment and fireworks.

The Panaceum Sun City Cinema in conjunction with Dome Café, will host the entertainment and the City of Greater Geraldton are sponsoring the fireworks display.

From 6pm, there will be live music, games, a bouncy castle, face painting, a fish and chip special from Dome and once the sun sets, the film Rio 2 will be playing on the big screen next to Dome.

The young ones won’t have to stay up until midnight to bring in the New Year with the fireworks predicted to get underway around 9:30pm. 

City of Greater Geraldton Acting Mayor, Neil McIlwaine, said the City was happy to support the event.

“Bringing in the New Year is something that everyone should celebrate, no matter what age,” he said.

“We’re glad that there is a community event that families can participate in to celebrate the New Year and we are proud to be part of it.”

Sun City Cinema owner, George Scicluna, said the event initiated from community feedback.

“We had a lot of feedback from the community about the lack of family activities on New Year’s Eve,” he said.

“Sun City Cinema has had such success throughout the year among local families with the cinema that we thought we would take that feedback on board and create a fun event for families this New Year’s Eve.”

The event will kick off from 6pm on the Foreshore next to Dome on Wednesday, December 31. Entry is $3 for children and $5 for adults.
