Free live entertainment and fireworks to mark Australia Day on the Coast
The annual community event will return to Gosford Leagues Club Park on Friday 26 January from 4-9pm.
Council’s Unit Manager of Community and Culture, Glenn Cannard said the all-age event is a chance for the community to come together and enjoy a picnic like atmosphere with family and friends.
“We have a great evening planned with live entertainment, food stalls, kids’ activities and a fireworks display over Brisbane Water to finish the night,” Mr Cannard said.
“To make sure the evening can run smoothly, we will have some road closures in place to keep event-goers safe in and around the park.”
Council’s Administrator, Rik Hart said the annual event will be among the first of the year to bring the Central Coast community together, with large crowds anticipated to attend.
“The evening will be a great chance to celebrate the end of the summer holidays like a Coastie with a picnic on the foreshore, kicking back listening to live music,” Mr Hart said.
“This alcohol-free event is a wonderful opportunity for everyone to come together and enjoy themselves in a fun and safe environment.”
There will be plenty of activities for the kids to stay entertained with a circus workshop, a sports play area and more, while the rest of the crowd will be serenaded by Sybella, Jump, The Ritzy Kids and Joel Leggett, headlined by Bermuda Social.
The fireworks will be a fantastic conclusion to the festivities, however due to their sound and bright lights Council encourages all nearby pet-owning residents to make sure their animals are kept inside to reduce additional stress.
