Early bird tickets are now on sale for Tropical Fruits’ New Year’s Festival, the group’s signature four-day LGBTIQ celebration held in the city of Lismore in northern New South Wales.
This year’s theme is “Neon Garden,” and the group’s colourful Street Parade through the CBD of Lismore – known by locals as the Rainbow Region – will open the festival before the New Year’s Eve Party and the Recovery Party are held at Lismore Showgrounds. The showgrounds are set to be transformed by hundreds of volunteers in time for the festivities.
“The theme invites people to come up to Lismore and get lost down a fantastic garden path and finding all sorts of different creatures, mythical and otherwise,” Club Manager Hannah Rice-Hayes said.
“This year we will welcome people into the garden of fruity delights, where we will illuminate the garden and unlock the gates of a neon wonderland.
“You can come as a neon ranger, a neon fairy, a bio-luminiscent creature, a rose garden, who knows! Anything that glows and shimmers.”
Partygoers on New Year’s Eve can sashay between three massive dance spaces featuring top Australian and international DJs. Revellers can take in the whole experience by camping on-site, and local queer artists, musicians and creative types will showcase their work at the Art Exhibition and Cabaret.
The next day, rejuvenate on New Year’s Day at the slippery, sexy Pool Party, held in the post-deco ambience of the Lismore Memorial Baths. Swim, shower, sun yourself and get dancing by the pool with the festival’s LGBTIQ locals and visitors.
