Farewell 2020 with a bang | Plus WIN the chance to Launch the Fireworks

Posted: 6am 11 Dec 2020

The Redcliffe foreshore will host a New Year’s Eve party like no other to farewell an unprecedented year that has challenged most. Here’s everything you need to know and your chance to be the lucky one to push the plunger on the spectacular fireworks display. 

The team at Redcliffe Markets is organising the event, which aims to give locals and visitors a chance to celebrate the new year and thank them for their support.

Market co-ordinator Mark Power said there would be live music, stilt walkers, Brazilian dancers, fire twirlers, sideshow alley, fireworks, market and food stalls and more.

The event will be similar to the popular Twilight Christmas Markets, with more of a party flavour.

“It might have been a fizzer of a year, but this is our chance to bid it farewell, with a bang, and to set the right tone for 2021, which should be about all of us coming together and celebrating,” Mr Power said.

Best of all, the fireworks will be earlier – 7.30 and 9.30pm.

Who will push the plunger on the 2020 New Years Eve Fireworks?

We're giving one lucky person the chance to push the plunger and launch the New Years Eve Fireworks at the New Year's Eve Party and say the ultimate farewell to 2020!

COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED. WINNER WILL BE ANNOUNCED SOON. 

Family-friendly event

There will be no fireworks at midnight and while the festivities will wrap-up at 10pm, there will be plenty of options at local venues for those wanting to continue the party and see in the new year.

“I think for the families that have traditionally taken children to fireworks, this is a great way to do it without having to trek into Brisbane CBD. They can support a local business, enjoy food and enjoy fireworks and be home in bed at a reasonable hour,” Mr Power said.

The event will be spread out over 1km along Redcliffe Pde, walkways will be bigger and stalls spread out so people can observe social distancing.

“We’ll be encouraging people to use all of the space down there,” he said.

“We’re doing it because of the year we’ve had, for many people it has been a bit of a bust. We have appreciated the support we’ve had at the Sunday market.

“People have wanted to support these community activities… this event is as much of a thank you for that as it is about setting the right tone for 2021.

“Local restaurants, cafes and traders along the footprint of our market … it’s a good opportunity for customers to experience these places if they haven’t before and enjoy the convenience of table service whilst experiencing the atmosphere of a great twilight market.”

Come together and celebrate

Moreton Bay Region Industry and Tourism (MBRIT) is supporting the event and CEO Shane Newcombe said it was a great chance to come together as a community to celebrate and support local traders and businesses.

“We know locals and visitors are keen to shake off 2020 and this family-friendly event is the perfect way to do it. They can grab a bite to eat, do some shopping, enjoy the entertainment and take in not one, but two fireworks displays,” Mr Newcombe said.

The team at Redcliffe Markets is encouraging people to register for free tickets online.
