THE huge New Year's Eve family-friendly event will have something for everyone to enjoy including a fun-filled evening of live music, amusement rides, an array of food options and a spectacular fireworks display to conclude the event at 9pm.


Central Coast Council’s Director Community and Recreation Services Melanie Smith is looking forward to the New Year Eve celebrations.


“This family-friendly, alcohol-free event will commence at 5.30pm with on-site food vendors, local restaurants and takeaway shops cooking up a treat, while music lovers will get the chance to enjoy Riley Lovell, Toby Wells Band, The Appointments and Sunsoli,” Ms Smith said.


“We will also be rounding off the evening with a dazzling display of fireworks from 9pm.


“Last year we welcomed the new year in with 20,000 attendees injecting an estimated $2million into the local economy and we anticipate this will again be another fantastic event!


“If you’re looking to celebrate New Year’s Eve in Gosford, Hunter Events Group will be bringing family-friendly fun to Leagues Club Park, proudly supported by Central Coast Council.


"This event will begin at 5pm bringing you a night full of live entertainment, food vendors and a fireworks display at 9pm – coinciding with the conclusion of the Central Coast Mariners game at Industree Group Stadium."


Council Administrator Rik Hart said it’s fantastic that New Year’s Eve celebrations are happening across the Coast.


“New Year’s Eve at The Entrance is one of Council’s biggest events and I encourage all to celebrate safely, bring a chair and a rug and connect through food, music and fun at this family-friendly alcohol-free event,” Mr Hart said.
