At the parties, residents can expect a live DJ, a jumping castle and inflatable play park, and lots of food and drinks to choose from.
Then, from 5pm, residents can head to our Twilight Party at Belmore Oval, where there will have free carnival rides, obstacle courses and live entertainment, including a performance by Baby Shark for the little ones to enjoy.
At Belmore Oval, residents will also have the chance to meet members of the Canterbury Bulldogs Rugby League team and even have the chance to dance with the team’s cheerleaders.
The council will also be collecting gold coin donations to go towards the Red Cross’ efforts to rebuild communities affected by the bushfires.
Mayor Khal Asfour says Australia Day – January 26 – is a time when everyone can come together and celebrate.
Earlier in the day, the mayor will be welcoming 20 new Australian Citizens and naming the winners of the Canterbury-Bankstown Australia Day Awards.
“This is one of the best parts of the day – not only welcoming new citizens on Australia Day but also acknowledging the contributions of our City’s residents,” Mayor Asfour said
“Joining me will be our City’s 2020 Australia Day Ambassador, actress, entertainer and author, Maria Venuti AM.”
Maria says she is looking forward to celebrating one of her favourite days of the year in a community that means a lot to her.
“The citizenship ceremony is very close to my heart and Canterbury-Bankstown is a special place where I’ve always enjoyed performing and making wonderful friends,” she said.
