Something different to bring in 2019
Here's a novel way to bring in the new year - go for a FUN RUN?
This is all apart of the Cairns Regional Council's New Years Eve festivities along the esplanade and the 4 km Fun Run will kick off at 7.30pm from Fogarty Park and will travel along the Cairns Esplanade and back.
Registration is free, entrants are encouraged to dress in neon colours and the event is suitable for all ages and fitness levels. You can pre-register here!
“A lot of people make new year’s resolutions to be more active or to take up running,” Cairns Mayor Bob Manning said. “This fun run is a great way to kick-start things for the new year.”
If running's not your style, you can grab the kids and enjoy live entertainment on stage at Fogarty Park from 5.30pm. They'll be fireworks at 9pm and midnight.
If you're not planning on coming into town, you can also catch fireworks at Palm Cove at 8pm and midnight.
