Fireworks at show tonight

WITH the first day of Show Whitsunday in full swing, residents are reminded to ensure pets are tied up or locked away before the fireworks scheduled for tonight.

Whitsunday Regional Council put the call out across social media to prevent pets from jumping fences or running away as fireworks can be very distressing for animals.

Kicking off around 8pm, the Wilmar Fireworks Presentation is just part of the entertainment still to come tonight.
