New Year’s Eve celebrations at Vansittart Park

THOUSANDS of revellers flocked to Vansittart Park on Sunday night to usher in 2018 at the annual community New Year’s Eve celebrations.

The family-friendly event boasted jumping castles, giant slides, top putt golf, rides, face painting, live music and Riot City Wrestling.

Performances by the Phoenix Singers, Profile, Ben Hood, Mischief and Mayhem, Rehashed and the Mount Gambier Pipe Band were well received.

Two spectacular fireworks displays lit up the sky at 9.30pm and again at midnight as the countdown to 2017 hit zero.
