Nagambie New Year’s Eve Fireworks cancelled

Nagambie New Year's Eve Fireworks cancelled

Nagambie's New Year's Eve Fireworks display has been cancelled for 2020 after advice from the Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions and concerns about COVID-safe requirements.

Go Nagambie and Strathbogie Shire Council made the announcement today (17 December 2020).

Go Nagambie Executive Officer Sissy Hoskin said she understood the news was disappointing for many families who had enjoyed the event for many years.

"We're truly disappointed at this news, but we must ensure we're abiding by this advice," Ms Hoskin said.

"We want to assure locals, and those visiting the area there is still so much to do in our fantastic town for New Year's Eve.

"We have recently launched our Go Dine initiative creating a new and fun dining experience in the centre grassed area on High St.

"And, as locals and visitors alike already know, our region is home to some of the country's best wineries and impressive waterways.

"We are hopeful that the NYE Fireworks display will return in 2021, and we look forward to that."

Strathbogie Shire Mayor, Cr Chris Raeburn, said balancing COVID-safe restrictions was challenging, but essential.

"While we have had fantastic news on recent coronavirus numbers, we must remain vigilant," Cr Raeburn said.

"I also understand the news this year's New Year's Eve Fireworks display will be upsetting for many, but please continue to enjoy all the truly special things that make our Shire so special.

"Most importantly, please stay safe."
