The 2018 fireworks in Brunswick Heads started the summer holidays with a bang. Photo Cristina Sharratt.

Children and families had plenty of fun on Wednesday evening in Brunswick Heads as the town heaved with people who were there to enjoy the twilight market and fireworks over the river.

The carnival is back in town over the Christmas and New Year (lets hope they have entered the 21st century with their murals this year) while the Brunswick Public School P&C has taken on the mammoth task of running the Housie tent.

The Housie tent has run each year for as long as many locals can remember but this year it would have folded without the Brunswick Primary P&C saving the day.

‘We were about to pull the pin, then the school stepped in’ says Russell Siwicki, spokesperson for the ALR Committee that oversees Housie.

The Housie Tent in Banner Park will be running from Dec 18 to January 20, open Tuesdays to Sundays, 7pm to 10pm.
