Location:

Main Arena

Times:

PM

Kids won’t have to wait up past their bedtime to see spectacular fireworks light up the Ekka sky, with new children’s fireworks at 6pm. Inspired by the colours of the stunning Great Barrier Reef - one of the seven wonders of the natural world – bright coloured pyrotechnics designed especially for the show will fire high into the sky to replicate the beautiful corals. Giant kites featuring fish, dolphins, whales and an octopus will swim and sway effortlessly through the sky, while stilt walkers will be beautifully themed in flowing ocean costumes. The fireworks display will be enhanced by sound tracks from Finding Nemo, Little Mermaid and the Wiggles, through to the bubble-gum pop Top 40 Hits of Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars and Katy Perry. Each night a lucky child will win the chance to push the special fireworks plunger, getting the stunning display off to a firing start! Early fireworks displays are long steeped in Ekka’s history - it was in the 1890s when fireworks first marked the arrival of acts in the Main Arena that were included purely for entertainment value.

From being a convict on the First Fleet, Squire turned his life around and rose to become one of the governor’s guards, the father of 11 children and, perhaps most significantly, the colony’s first and most sought-after brewer. An impressive resume by anyone’s standards, he lived enough life for several men. Today, well over 150 years later, the James Squire name, and spirit, lives on with the James Squire craft beer and cider range. With the same dedication to quality and desire to pioneer the best of flavours, we hope James Squire would be proud of the beers and ciders that carry his name.
