The new year is set to start with a bang as preparations continue for Wagga’s Skyworks event.
With three events across three venues, celebrations will kick off on the water at Lake Albert as local wake-boarders and bare-foot skiers showcase their skills.
Thomas Bros dealer principal director Daniel Martelozzo said residents and visitors can expect a 20-minute firework display at 9.30pm followed by a traditional midnight countdown to a five-minute display.
“Everyone is encouraged to make a weekend of it – we are trying to create a ‘wow’ factor and an event which appeals to everyone,” Mr Martelozzo said.
“We are intent on attracting people not just from Wagga but from outlying areas so local shops and restaurants should really see a difference.”
Celebrations will also be held at the Wagga Boat Club and Wagga Country Club.
Mr Martelozzo said businesses interested in organising a bus to their venue to continue celebrations should contact 6926 0501.
