Caroline Bay Association President Kevin Ancell took time out from Caroline Bay Carnival preparations to survey the carnival grounds from the vantage point of the ferris wheel yesterday.

He said the association was hoping for a good turnout for the carnival, which will run over 18 days this season.

An extra $20,000 is being spent on live entertainment this year, which organisers hope will mean a fresher, more appealing line-up.

The 2013/14 concert highlights include Jason Kerrison, Annie Crummer, Jamie McDell and Glenn Shorrock, ''Voice of the Little River Band'', direct from Australia.

Bee Gees and Freddie Mercury tribute shows will also feature.

The Howard Morrison Junior Trio is back, along with Camille Te Nahu, Stuie French from Australia, The Beat Girls and The Black Velvet Band.

Mr Ancell said there would also be a lot of prize giveaways and a ''bigger and better'' fireworks display to celebrate the New Year.
