New Year's Eve fireworks displays at Wollombi, Pokolbin and Lovedale have been cancelled due to the ongoing bushfire crisis.
With a total fire ban in place in the Greater Hunter and severe bushfire danger forecast, Wollombi Tavern, Harrigan's Irish Pub and Hunter Valley Gardens all announced on Tuesday morning that the night's fireworks will be cancelled.
Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley at Lovedale had called off its fireworks earlier this month.
Patrons of all four events are encouraged to donate to the NSW Rural Fire Service.
Firefighters are continuing to battle the Little L and Crumps Complex fires near Wollombi, and the Owendale fire in Pokolbin State Forest, which have been burning for about a month.
As of 2.30pm Tuesday, all three fires were listed as 'being controlled' and at 'advice' level on the RFS website.
