After two extremely successful years it was hard to think that the Coolamon New Years Eve Street Party could get any better, but with record crowds from throughout the region and intrastate filling Cowabbie Street it has done it again!

In 2013, the program included a great combination of kids activities and amusements, which surrounded the Beyond Bank Childrens Marquee. The Coolamon Girl Guides were busy biscuit making.. Megan and her team had the face painting under control… And, the friendly staff of Beyond Bank kept the kids guessing with a range of competitions and giveaways on offer.

As if the Old Kentucky Animal Farm and jumping castles weren't enough, the program also included live entertainment, dance performances, bands and of course, the family fireworks spectacular! With crowd favourite Jack Thompson kicking off the main stage, patrons enjoyed the sounds of The Coolamon Accordionists, Sarah English and Drew Raynes as the night went on. The guys and gals of the Southern Cross Performing Arts Dance Academy wowed crowds in a night that peaked with the pub-rock band, The Convicts on stage until late. 

Family friendly? Yes please!

With out the help of Chairman, Daniel Crocker, our dedicated team of volunteers and the great support the event receives from event sponsors, this event would not be possible. A BIG Coolamon thank you to; Event Partner: Coolamon Shire Council, Major Partners: Beyond Bank and North Eastern Riverina Rural Counselling Service (NERRCS) and Entertainment Partner: Coolamon Royal Tavern.

The Coolamon NYE Street Party surely is here to stay so mark it in your diary for 2014 - event organisers guarantee you will not be disappointed!
