BATHURST sent off 2017 with a bang at Party in the Park.
The annual event bought the community together for a massive celebration in Victoria Park, with thousands in attendance throughout the night.
Patrons were able to enjoy a wide variety of entertainment, live music, food stalls and make use of the Adventure Playground.
The event concluded with a family fireworks display at 9pm, which was designed and executed by Fireworks Australia.
The company has been coming to Bathurst for several years to help residents celebrate New Year’s Eve.
Western Advocate photographer Chris Seabrook was on hand at Party in the Park to capture the fun of the afternoon and the lights display at the end of the night.
