Ready to ring in 2015
RING in the new year with intrigue and mystery at the Commercial Hotel's Masquerade Ball tomorrow night.
Commercial Hotel owner Tim Harris said multiple stages were opened up in the lead-up to the event.
Resident DJ Direct will be joined by DJs Sway and Hertz, brought in from Brisbane to ensure everyone is up and dancing for the countdown.
Mr Harris said he expected about 500 people to walk through the doors, but the venue was prepared to cater for up to 700.
The night's masquerade theme promises to add character to the event, but is a "representation of what's happened this year".
Mr Harris said the masquerade theme was pulled from "a lot of topical events over the course of the year, fear of the unknown and mystery all rolled into one".
Doors will open at 10am on the 31st, for those keen to kick-start the celebration early, but the DJs will start their sets at 8pm.
There is free entry before 9pm, and a $10 cover charge from 9pm onwards.
Mr Harris said he expected it to be the biggest party of the year.
