YOUR IDEAS: 10 ways to celebrate Urangan Pier 100 years

FISHING competitions, a pop up restaurant and a sunset dinner are some of the creative suggestions to celebrate the 100 year anniversary of the Urangan Pier.

Here are ideas suggested by you on Facebook: 

1. Colourful lanterns along the entire pier, set with tables and chairs for a sunset meal provided by 3 or 4 of the nearest restaurants. A local group playing (not too loud) to set the mood of celebration and a lucky draw for the people attending. A photograph taken to commemorate this special occasion.

2. Maybe something to help the community as well as celebrate it? Photo boards from throughout the years displayed of the pier and a photo competition for all the magnificent photo's that the community has taken of it and use it as a display somewhere in town as the prize. Also have a celebration! Put on some local buskers to play during the day, some food and market local stalls, children's entertainment and a fishing comp for the adults.

4. Not local charity but maybe set up an auxiliary for the pier to keep it upgraded and maybe in the future extend it to its former glory and keep council away from it

 4. Ball where everyone has to wear what they wore 100 years ago
