Wodonga families will bring in the New Year in style as the city welcomes back its fireworks spectacular at Birallee Park.
The free event, hosted by Wodonga Raiders Football Netball Club, was cancelled due to COVID restrictions in 2020 and was in doubt again until recent weeks.
Raiders president Mark Johnston said there had been a whirlwind of activity to get ready for the occasion.
"We're in full flight organising it at the moment and having everything ready to go," he said.
"There's been a bit of chatter that it's good to see it's finally going ahead."
