NYE events cancelled due to weather
With the likelihood of very heavy rain and strong winds, Council has today (28/12/2018) made the very sad decision to cancel New Year’s Eve activities in Fogarty Park.
The surface of Fogarty Park has sustained damage from recent heavy rain. Further heavy rain and strong winds are expected across the next three days. As a safety precaution, the family concert, children’s activities and fun run have been cancelled.
At this stage, fireworks at 9pm and midnight are planned to go ahead, providing conditions on the night render it safe to do so.
Further updates will be made available via Cairns Regional Council’s Facebook page.
The Cairns Regional Council NYE Resolution Fun Run is a 4km twilight fun run and it's FREE to register.
Register with your family and friends and do something that is fun and challenging. What a better way to end the year with a Fun Run with your friends, teammates, family members and furry friends!
This is more than just a “fun run” it is a celebration and a healthy way to ring in the new year! All ages welcome and the first 200 runners over the line will receive a delicious cupcake for their efforts!
To honour the superheroes in our community such as frontline workers, medical staff, firefighters, police, teachers etc, this year's theme is SUPERHEROES! Not all heroes wear capes but make sure to dress up as your favourite superhero!
* Prizes will be awarded to the first male and first female over the finish line.
** Prizes for the best-dressed human and dog will be awarded too!
