A new year’s celebration with a bang

10 Dec 2015

A new year’s celebration with a bang Image

South Wharf will come alive this New Year’s Eve with a celebration of the world’s best Carnivalés and a one-of-a-kind, ground-level fireworks display.

As part of World Carnivalé 2015 celebrations, locals can secure a place to witness the only ground-level fireworks display in Melbourne this New Year’s Eve, and enjoy a selection of five uniquely themed parties.

For the second year in a row, seven launch pads will be installed along North Wharf that will each let off an exciting 10-minutes worth of firework, bringing in 2016 with a real bang.

Event organiser Eddie Muto said fireworks at ground-level was a unique experience not to be missed.

“Watching fireworks that are launched from a high level is not as intense,” he said. “The sound wave doesn’t hit your body so therefore, your body is not being told to get ready for action and therefore you don’t get any adrenalin.”

“You feel the vibrations at ground level and automatically your brain sends out this adrenalin so you’re ready for action.”

To coincide with the fireworks show, World Carnivale 2015 will see a host of South Wharf venues transform into an array of themed Carnivalé parties.

Venice on the Yarra (Common Man), Buena Vida (Bohemian) and Rio Grade (Meat Market) will each celebrate Italian, Argentinian and Brazilian themed Carnivalés respectively.

The Lights, Love and Lanterns display (Showtime Events) will host some world-class musical acts, including New York DJ Osunlade and local artist Mike Steva.

The Melbourne Lawn, located between Showtime Events and the Meat Market, will see a temporary outdoor installation host an Australian spin on Carnivalé through an extensive offering of contemporary Australian foods.

Mr Muto said the celebration would provide locals with an atmosphere like no other.

“It’s a multi-genre and multi demographic event, which no one has ever attempted to do before,” he said. “You have five different food genres and five different music genres all in one ticket.”

“It’s a celebration of all of the world Carnivales and we’re going to be bringing that same spirit to Melbourne.”
