Eden skies to light up this New Year's Eve.

Eden skies to light up this New Year's Eve.

Eden community can prepare to see the year out with a bang as the New Year’s Eve fireworks display has been given the go ahead. 

The Barclay Street sports ground will be the location to sit back and bring in the new year under a dazzling display of starbursts,rockets and other colourful favourites. 

Eden Service and Social Club president Graham Gray said it would be a family show at 9.30pm rather than the traditional midnight one

“Which we hope will make it easier for families to enjoy and to be part of welcoming in the New Year together.”

Along with ESSCI and the Eden Lioness Club, major sponsors are Gateway Caravan Park, the Garden of Eden Caravan Park, Fraser Marine, Eden Fishermen’s and Recreation Club, Pentarch Industries and the Killer Whale Museum. 

 Community support is still needed to raise the final $1000 which will complete the funding. Donations can be made directly through the IMB Bank or through the donations box in the newsagents.
