Yamba braces for New Year's fireworks

SET to be its best yet, the Pacific Hotel in Yamba is bracing for a wicked fireworks display this New Year's Eve.

Venue manager Tom McIntosh said revellers would not be disappointed with the display.

"The guy who does the fireworks has told us he has got some special ones from China to make it extra great for our 20th year," he said.

Before the display at midnight, Sex Wax DJs will hit the decks from 5pm and Byron cover band Pink Zinc will perform from 9pm.

"It's the best place in town and usually gets pretty packed out so we're expecting it to be even bigger this year," Mr McIntosh said.

Tickets are $25 a person, available at the pub.

"We can cater for about 600 but tickets sell out very fast," Mr McIntosh said.

The party at the Yamba YHA Backpacker Beach Resort is also expected to be popular.

Owner Kellie Henwood said it was sure to be a great night.

"We get people of all ages, it's free entry and it's a really relaxed, chilled night," she said.

"We close up at 11.30pm and head up the hill to watch the fireworks which everybody loves."
