For the Family Friendly free events in Canberra, two prominent sites in the city will again play host to New Year’s Eve celebrations, with a family-friendly concert in Civic Square (London Circuit), a dance party in Garema Place, and two fireworks displays at 9pm and midnight.
From 7.00pm, the main stage in Civic Square will be the place for families and music lovers of all ages to come along and enjoy performances by one of Australia’s favourite bands, The Whitlams, and local Canberra bands, Who’s Ya Daddy and Kiwi G. This is a great opportunity for parents to bring their children to Civic to enjoy the early fireworks.
From 9pm, Garema Place will feature top local DJs counting down to midnight with all the dance hits of 2010. One of Canberra's most state-of-the-art pyrotechnic displays will then top off the night, with the fireworks set to a soundtrack that will herald in the New Year.
Both the Civic Square and Garema Place events are alcohol-free to encourage a safe and friendly atmosphere. ACTION Buses will operate on a modified weekday timetable, with the Nightrider service also available from 1am.
