A DUAL fireworks show will light up the waterfront on New Year’s Eve in Port Douglas.
Family-friendly fireworks at 8pm and the popular midnight show at Dickson Inlet will see a celebratory spark bring in 2023.
Douglas Shire Council has also organised food trucks and free kids’ entertainment with a disco, UV glow lighting and face painting at Market Park from 5.30pm.
Douglas Shire Mayor Michael Kerr said the fireworks added to the vibrant atmosphere of the annual event.
“Local restaurants and bars are always overflowing on New Year’s Eve, and I encourage everyone to make the most of the night,” he said.
“With free family friendly entertainment and dazzling fireworks displays, there’s no better place to be for the community to come together and celebrate the new year.”
“I would like to thank all our amazing sponsors, in particular the Tin Shed which has provided significant sponsorship support to help us secure the fireworks.”
