If you're heading to Gizzy this year for the sold out Rhythm & Vines New Year's festivities, then you might want to read this article.
Police have made a plea to the Gisborne District Council to extend the liquor ban area which they've agreed to.
The ban basically covers a large part of Gisborne. So if you're thinking about roadside drinking, or drinking in a carpark lot somewhere, you're unfortunately out of luck.
For full details on the liquor ban check out the Gisborne District Council website.
