New Year’s Eve festivities return to Koshigaya Park on Saturday 31 December from 7pm to midnight, with rides, a variety of delicious food and dessert trucks, show bags and music as the clock counts down to midnight.

A spectacular fireworks display will take place at 9pm for families to enjoy, before a midnight fireworks show to welcome 2023.

“Koshigaya Park has always been a big hit with local families for our New Year’s Eve celebrations so it’s exciting to see it return here after a few disrupted years,” Mayor of Campbelltown George Greiss said.

“I’m sure the whole park will be buzzing throughout the evening with a great array of family-friendly music and entertainment planned.”

Local artists Karleigh Rose (7pm) and White Clover (8pm) will warm up the crowds early in the evening before Glam Bam Thank You Ma’am take to the stage (9.10pm) to play some of the best glam hits of the 70s.

Sons of Mercury will then bring their high-energy indie rock and dance fusion to the stage (10pm) before home-grown star Missy Lancaster headlines the evening’s performances (11pm) and begins the countdown to the midnight fireworks and welcome the New Year.

A free Glitter Bar will add some sparkle to the event and free face-painting for the kids.

“I look forward to seeing everyone there to welcome 2023 in Campbelltown,” Cr Greiss said.
