[ADVERT]Garrison Point in Sydney's inner western suburbs is once again the home to Bankstown Council hosting their Australia Day celebrations. They have been doing so for the last 25 years, so you'd expect they know a thing or two about celebrating Australia Day.
Everything on the night will be absolutely free, and that includes amusement rides for all ages, Australian displays, food stalls and plenty of action for the little ones with fun-filled kids corners, facepainting and magic shows.
The TAP is a community project of Bankstown City Council whose primary goal was to identify, nurture and promote local talent within local schools. The students take part in a series of workshops where experienced coaches and mentors help them develop and strengthen their performance and vocal techniques.
The dance crew Kookies N Kream have been performing and competing in the dance industry since 2010 and have since won countless dance titles.
But what is perhaps more recently known is that the crew were finalists on Australia's Got Talent for 2012. The crew will be making an appearance and performing at this years Australia Day celebrations at Garrison Point starting from 5:40pm on the evening.
The Enormous Horns are a fun party band with a decade of experience performing in hotels and clubs, functions, weddings and outdoor festivals.
They are a ten piece all singing, all dancing party band that covers a little Elvis Presley, KC and the Sunshine Band and more. They will be playing at this year's Australia Day celebrations from 6:30pm onwards.
Shannon Noll was a finalist and runner up in the very first Australian Idol and quickly went on to sign a deal with Sony BMG and released five top 10 albums.
I'll admit I am a fan of Shannon Noll and I personally will be welcoming his earlier songs to the stage.
