watch-sydneys-new-years-eve-firework-celebrationsSydney’s spectacular New Year’s Eve firework celebrations will be viewed by more than a billion people around the world which will be streamed live around the world for the first time via Facebook and YouTube, Bernama news reported.

 

Up to 1.6 million people are expected to pack the harbour foreshore as 120 tonnes of fireworks set to music light up the night sky at midnight Saturday.

 

More than 20,000 fireworks will be blasted from Sydney Harbour Bridge alone, with another 100,000 fireworks sent skywards from barges and points up and down the harbour.

 

This year the fireworks will be honouring superstars of music who died in 2016 including Prince and David Bowie as well as a Willy Wonka effect to honour Gene Wilder.

 

Sydney’s Lord Mayor Clover Moore said the “world’s most famous fireworks show” will break new ground with digital technology making it possible for people around the world to share in the celebration in the palm of their hands.
