Quotes attributed to City of Greater Geelong Mayor Stephanie Asher:

The waterfront fireworks are an excellent way for our community to come together and bring in the new year. We encourage everyone to join in and have a good time as we celebrate the start of 2020. Please stay safe, look after your friends and family, and remember to care for your pets too, in case they are frightened by fireworks.
“On behalf of the council, happy New Year to everyone in the Greater Geelong community. We hope 2020 brings happiness and good health for all.
