There's a good reason to stay up past your bedtime this New Year's Eve, with music and fireworks to herald in 2014 at North Hagley Park.

The night kicks off at 6.30pm, and youngsters will be able to partake in an early countdown at 8.30pm.

Those who stay up late will be treated to fireworks at midnight.

A council spokeswoman said 10,000 locals were expected to join the festivities, which is alcohol-free and family-friendly.

Musical entertainment on the night includes local band The Easy Hearts and The New Zealand Army Band, who will showcase the Gangnam Style moves that gained international attention.

Parking will be available on the Carlton Mill soccer field off Harper Ave for a $3 donation.

Celebrations will wrap up by 12.30am. If travelling by bus, be sure to check the schedule as no buses will run after midnight.

The event is the first in the council's SummerTimes series
