Where to ring in 2020 in the South Burnett
BETWEEN Christmas and New Years no one would blame you for not knowing what's going on as the days blur into each other and we move into the new year.
If you're yet to nail down some New Year's Eve plans, don't stress, we've put together a list of where you can celebrate in the South Burnett:
THE Goomeri and District Show Society will be holding their annual New Year's Eve Family Rodeo at the Goomeri Showgrounds to help ring in the New Year. Gates will open and junior rodeo action will commence at 8am; pre-performance events will begin at 1pm; and the main rodeo will kick off around 5pm and continue into the evening.
The event is a full bull and bronco NRA-affiliated Rodeo. Events on offer include an Open Bull Ride, Saddle and Bareback Broncs, Time Event Stock, and the must-have Poddy Ride for all the junior cowboys and cowgirls.
After the rodeo there will be live entertainment until late. There will be a fully licensed bar and barbecue operating all day and into night.
Entry fees are $20 for adults, $15 for kids aged from 12 to 17, kids under 12 can enter for free, or it is $50 for a family of four.
THE Kingaroy Dance Supporters Group will be hosting The 90s - The Ultimate Nostalgia Game Show at Trades Hall inside the Kingaroy Showgrounds in Youngman St from 7pm until late.
