Gympie Regional Council today announced the cancellation of the NYE Fireworks at Rainbow Beach.
Shane Gray, Gympie Regional Council CEO, said the decision to cancel was not an easy one especially as Council are looking at ways to support our regional communities with events rotating across the region.
“Ultimately the decision was out of our hands because of the state restrictions placed on events such as these due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Council worked hard to look at all options to deliver the event, however it isn’t possible with the restrictions around social distancing and contact tracing, not to mention the current situation in NSW.” he said.
“I hope all our residents and visitors have a wonderful New Year’s Eve, stay safe and hopefully we’ll see the return of our annual fireworks at the end of 2021.”
