NYE countdown a carnival

The countdown to 2016 is on with hours to go and as an annual tradition, what better way to welcome the New Year with fireworks at the Lamana Gold Club.

The theme party for this New Year’s Eve is ‘masquerade carnival’ featuring the Ice Fashion Show grand final to choose the top designer and top model of the year.

Entertainment will also include Australia’s hottest female DJ duo The Twins to count you down into the New Year.

Lamana Hotel general manager Yiannis Nicolaou said every year the fireworks get bigger and better, and this New Year’s Eve is expected to showcase another big fireworks display.

Nicolaou said the show will be more spectacular than last year with a lot more shots and non-stop action.

The fireworks are expected to go off from atop a 20-floor building and as usual, there will be a countdown 2015 sign change before the fireworks display to welcome 2016.

The fireworks display is designed to burn with flames and sparks of many colours, typically red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple and silver.

It will be the most colourful and spectacular highlight in the sky as party goers and city residents nearby will see several minutes of more than 10 different effects displayed.
