Notification of Fireworks for illuminARTe Wollondilly – Saturday 5 May 2018

Posted on: 27.04.2018

Wollondilly Council is advising residents that a fireworks display will be held between 9.00pm and 9.15pm on Saturday 5 May 2018, as part of the 2018 illuminARTe Wollondilly Festival.

The fireworks display will be launched from Lot 4, 219 Argyle Street Picton, above the mushroom tunnel.

Two local fire crews from NSW Fire & Rescue will be on site to make sure all safety measures are followed before, during and after the fireworks.

Community Projects and Events Team Leader Rob Moran said, ”This notification is made to ensure that residents in the immediate area are aware of the display so that action can be undertaken for the protection of pets and livestock to prevent any possible harm or distress.”

The Animal Shelter on Wonga Road Picton will extend their hours on Sunday 6 May to allow residents more time to collect or bring in animals that escaped due to the fireworks. The hours for that Sunday will be 10am to 2.30pm.

“Council will endeavour to minimise the nuisance, but there is inevitably going to be some disturbance,” Mr Moran advised.

“We appreciate the understanding of the community and look forward to seeing everyone at this year’s festival.”

If your pet has escaped or you have found an animal please call the Animal Shelter on 4677 0462 to arrange a drop off or pick up.
