Cracker night a hit in Airlie

CRACKER night goers got more bang for their buck last Friday with a slightly longer, $20,000 fireworks display on the Airlie foreshore.

Hundreds of people gathered to watch the Airlie Beach sky fill with sparkles and colour and a bit of noise at the Fantasea Adventure Cruising Cracker Night.

Fantasea Adventure Cruising general manager Michelle Rynne said the night was “absolutely fabulous”.

“We had excellent support this year,” she said.

“Everyone loved it and loved the charity that was chosen this year - RACQ-CQ rescue helicopter. “A big thank you goes out to all the volunteers, small businesses, staff and everyone who supported the night.”

The family night out meant people of every age could take a picnic and relax on what was a somewhat chilly, Whitsundays night.

The cool change didn't scare anyone off though with Fantasea recording good numbers for the night.

The kids were kept entertained with jumping castles and face painting as well as other fun activities and there were plenty of stalls for those who felt like a browse.
