Due to current fire restrictions, Bundaberg Regional Council today decided to cancel the New Year’s Eve fireworks event in Bundaberg.
Council's community and cultural services portfolio spokesperson, Cr Judy Peters, said it was a necessary decision.
“We are very mindful of the current fire restrictions and the fact that there are privately run New Year’s Eve celebrations for our region’s residents to attend,” Cr Peters said.
“There are celebrations at Bargara and Gin Gin that are always popular.
“In addition, lots of businesses around our region are holding New Year’s Eve celebrations that we hope residents will attend.
“Our main concern is that people celebrate New Year’s Eve responsibly with family and friends.”
