Fireworks Attract Stars

Paynesville fireworks event brings some big names

Organisers of Friday night's fireworks show in Paynesville have added another two attractions to the event in the form of national footy players.

AFLW player Jess Hosking from Carlton has been confirmed for the 'Revive East Gippsland Fireworks' event and former St Kilda player Sam Fisher will be there.

"They will be onstage saying hello, and Sam will to tell us about the impact he's had from the fires, from his friends and family," said Simon Ellis from Paynesville Community Events.

The pair will meet attendees and be available for autographs and photos.

St Kilda FC has donated a jumper signed by the whole team to be auctioned on the night.

"We've got market stalls and food stalls that are from fire affected areas; we've also got kids' entertainment, jumping castles, inflatable slides, fairy floss, popcorn and everything," Simon said.

That adds to live music, a giant cinema screen and of course the fireworks that have been held over from New Year's Eve.

Not only is it a family night, the committee is also promoting it as a Valentines Day event.
