Fire burns. We all know that right? Please stay clear of fire jugglers, braziers, fire breathing dragons etc.
Tin can lanterns can get hot so please be mindful of this, we expect children with lanterns to have a responsible adult looking out for them.

The main road though town will be closed on Friday July 9th and Saturday July 10th, from 5pm to 9.30pm, for the concert. There will be a bypass through Woollams Ave, and onto Tiki Road.
