Mackay Regional Council New Years Fireworks
year, the Mackay Regional Council and local business join together to
give the residents of Mackay, Queensland a special ending to the old
year and a way to herald in the New Year in spectacular fashion with
a free street party and fireworks display.
Each year the fireworks display seems to outdo the previous spectacular event, with
thanks to Mackay
Regional Council and Auto
Corner Mackay for sponsoring the fireworks and City Heart street
party, which is always very impressive year after year for visual beauty and enjoyment.
With the fireworks being held on the banks of the Pioneer River, the
location gives residents the best vantage points to see the fireworks
display without the need to queue for long hours.
There are ample viewing
spots on both the north and south banks of the river to watch the display.
Council should also be thanked for thinking of the kids and holding
2 separate displays on the night, one at 9.00pm and then the main fireworks
display at midnight, to welcome in the New Year.
Mackay is a progressive city, quickly growing into one of the most
influential and economic powerhouses of all major regional centres in
Queensland. With the forecast that the population of Mackay will double
within the next decade, Mackay and surrounding areas will enjoy the
benefits of the mild tropical climate and diverse employment opportunities.
Mackay saw devastating floods in early 2008 and the shadow of the world
economic crisis loomed over the coal industry, the city has bounced back
with renewed vigor and is full of confidence.
With a Regional Council that has vision, understanding and growth as
their major priority and local businesses that are prepared to invest
in the region, the populace can look forward to many more years of Happy
New Years, flocking to the Mackay City Heart and the banks of Pioneer
River, to enjoy this most spectacular event.
Thank You Mackay Regional Council and major sponsor Auto
Corner Mackay for giving the people of Mackay a free fireworks display
and street party to greet the New Year.
Funtours wish all Mackay residents and visitors a Happy New Year and
may each New Year be a safe and prosperous time for all.
