Who else is still looking for something to do this weekend for New Year’s Eve? We know we’re still guilty of not planning for this Sunday night. However, we’re feeling the lineup down at the Torren’s Riverbank.
With an eclectic line-up of local music, food from around the world, a new Kids Zone, and two spectacular fireworks displays, the City of Adelaide’s free New Year’s Eve party in Elder Park and Adelaide Riverbank will be the place to be for families and friends to welcome in 2018.
The action gets underway on Sunday 31 December from 6 pm along the picturesque banks of the River Torrens in the heart of the riverbank precinct with the brand-new Kids Zone, thanks to program partner, the Riverbank Authority.
The Kids Zone will feature a full family program on the Street Theatre Stage, children’s shows in the Rastelli venue and special activities for families in the Nonsense Inc. Big Top. This year’s program of roving performance is the largest yet, guaranteed to surprise and delight children and adults alike.
The 2017 fireworks are set to be bigger and more spectacular than ever, thanks to the event’s principal partner and fireworks sponsor Enerven. The first fireworks will be at 9 pm, before the main show lights up the sky at midnight. Both displays will be set to a sensational soundtrack from local music producer Tim Whitt.
Lord Mayor of Adelaide Martin Haese said the live music program at this year’s event would be a celebration of Adelaide’s status as UNESCO City of Music.
