IPSWICH will see off 2012 with a bang tonight.

The celebrations will be held in North Ipswich Reserve with fireworks, food stalls, music and entertainment from 6pm.

Ipswich mayor Paul Pisasale said the celebrations would make for a great night out.

"There's no better way to see out a great 2012 and welcome 2013 than a free evening of entertainment," he said.

The kids will be kept busy with free children's rides, street theatre and live music and families can pack a picnic or purchase food from one of the available vendors.

Cr Pisasale said entertainment would include performances by The Crack-Up Sisters, the Popcorn Pirates and Zion.

"The highly entertaining Crack-Up Sisters will perform their comedic whip cracking show and the Popcorn Pirates will teach audiences how to talk, dress, sing and dance like a pirate," he said.

Zion features soulful singer Nadine Francois and some of Brisbane's top musicians for a high-class performance and fireworks will conclude the evening at 8pm.
