The BIGGEST family-friendly night out in Newrybar is on this Saturday, The Newrybar Public School Fireworks Night.

Keeping a 35+ year tradition alive, Newrybar Public School is set to light up the night sky once again this Saturday with its iconic, annual Bonfire and Fireworks Spectacular. This much-treasured community event is also an important fund-raising event for Newrybar Public School.

For newcomers to this epic night, The Newrybar fireworks display does not disappoint! But here’s the best part, it’s guilt-free fun. Newrybar Fireworks Night has gone carbon neutral this year. The event will be 100 per cent carbon offset by donating to Bangalow Koalas towards the planting and ongoing maintenance of trees in the local koala conservation belt.

Like bonfire nights from days of old, winter magic will be in the air. There will be kids running around with torches and glow sticks. Families will warm themselves by the giant bonfire enjoying delicious local food while awaiting the fireworks spectacular at 7pm.

But that’s not all! There’s plenty to do before the big sparks fly. 

There will be fairground rides, slides and an obstacle course, Shorty Brown kids disco and entertainment for the whole family.

Roll up! Bring your good vibes, picnic blankets, winter woollies, and flashlights and join in for the most anticipated family event this winter.

Gates open on Saturday, at 4pm at the Newrybar Public School, entry is $5 per child/$10 per adult or $20 per family and you can find out more at info@newrybarfireworks.

A special thanks goes to the event fairground sponsors Inspired Built, for their generous donation towards fairground rides www.inspiredbuilt.com.au.
