ILLUMINATE | Fairfield brings in the New Year with a bang

Illuminate remains the “best family-friendly event for New Year’s Eve in Sydney” according to Fairfield mayor Frank Carbone after the third annual event sparkled at Calmsley Hill City Farm.

“Families were treated to a brilliant line-up of entertainment, which culminated in the biggest collective fireworks display in all of south-west Sydney,” Mayor Carbone said.

“...Celebrations at Calmsley Hill City Farm were a huge hit for local families, showcasing exactly why this year’s tickets were booked out in record time.

“Our headline act, children’s entertainment group Hi-5, provided high-energy performances that had children and parents on their feet dancing, while many children enjoyed the free amusement rides, returning again and again with friends in tow.

“The event concluded with a fantastic multi-site fireworks display at 9pm in conjunction with fireworks at six clubs around the City, which ensured families who missed out on tickets to Illuminate were able to watch fireworks from the comfort of their own backyard.”

Participating clubs included Cabramatta Bowling Club, Cabra-Vale Diggers Club, Club Marconi, Fairfield RSL, Mounties and Smithfield RSL.
