Big show offers fun for all

Starting at 4pm, it will feature some fantastic headline acts including Ross Wilson, Johnny Ruffo, Mike Champion, Cold Chisel Show,

AC/DC Thunderstruck Show and Living Chair.

The mayor of Blacktown, Len Robinson, said Blacktown City's Australia Day events attracted huge crowds in previous years.

"Our celebrations are without doubt one of the largest in New South Wales," he said.

"Blacktown City celebrates our multiculturalism and what better day to once again come together as a community and celebrate what our great country offers to everyone who chooses to call Australia home.

"I encourage the community to join in with our family friendly, alcohol free Australia Day celebrations as it will truly be a day to remember."

The keenly awaited event will be held at Moreau Reserve, Eastern Road, Rooty Hill.

Free amusement rides, a waterslide and an amazing parachute jump with the largest flag in the southern hemisphere will be sure to entertain the entire family.

The grand finale will feature a fireworks display at 9.15pm.

During Australia Day, Blacktown City will welcome more than 200 new citizens at Blacktown City Council's 2013 Australia Day Citizenship Ceremony at Bowman Hall, Campbell Street, Blacktown.
