COOLAMON'S community will be coming together on New Year's Eve as the town fills the main street. Normally a busy thoroughfare and shopping area, Cowabbie Street will be transformed for the third annual street party to welcome the new year. "The last two were very successful, it brings in a lot of people from outside the town and shire, including Wagga," mayor John Seymour said. Councillor Seymour said the success was down to the support of local people for the event, and the family-friendly community atmosphere. "It's brings everyone together, people can sit around and have a lemonade or a beer and have a good chat," he said. Coolamon's street party is a free event with two sets of fireworks, which have been sponsored by Coolamon Shire Council. Children's activities include a jumping castle, spinning plates, face painting, the Old Kentucky Farm and more are available, with entry to these activities costing $10. Meanwhile, the Coolamon pool will host an inflatable slide from midday to 9.30pm. Scheduled to take the stage this year are Bitter Shoosh, Jack Thompson, Amanda Long, Natasha Higginson and Southern Cross Performance Arts. "Last year's street party was hugely popular, and this year it's going to be even bigger," co-ordinator Lisa Cameron said. "We are really excited and have so many quality performers and family activities. "Coolamon will see out 2014 with a bang." New Year's Eve street party kicks off at 6pm and runs until midnight.
