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 night time fun run and it's FREE to register.
