New Year’s Eve: Goodbye 2014

“IF the capital cities can do it, then why should Mildura be any different?”

Extravaganza: Revellers enjoy the New Year’s Eve concert and fireworks at Nowingi Place in Mildura last year, where celebrations will be held tonight to ring in 2015.

That’s Mildura Rural City Council Mayor Glenn Milne’s attitude to New Year’s Evecelebrations planned for Sunraysia revellerstonight.

Bananas in Pyjamas, Alvin and the Chipmunks, Postman Pat, Batman, Wonder Woman, INXS and Michael Jackson tributes are just a few of the acts set to wow thousands at Nowingi­ Place from 8pm.

Local bands Sibin and Ruby’s Caution Horse will perform throughout the evening and a range of food and refreshment stalls, and children’s rides will add to the festive atmosphere.

But Cr Milne is most excited about theannual New Year’s Eve fireworks.

This year, there will be repeat showings so younger attendees can head home to bed earlier.­

“People just love fireworks, I don’t know what it is but we’re all obsessed with it,” Cr Milne said.

“Since we were all little kids we love to go the show because we know it will finish with fireworks.”­

The Mayor is looking forward to fulfilling his official mayoral task of the countdown to midnight.­

While he will have a prime position to view the fireworks, the photography enthusiast is slightly disappointed he won’t be able to take any of his own snaps when the explosives go off.

“I like the ones that explode into great big balls, the great big ones that burst into all the colours,” he said.

“Last year’s display was spectacular and I’m expecting this year’s to be just as good.
