New Year’s Eve fireworks: Here’s where the sky is lighting up for 2020


The best view of most major cities is going to be from your couch. #Most of the large traditional displays of fireworks and celebrations globally have been canceled and replaced with smaller televised or streamed events.

#Here are the places still holding events and where to watch the downscaled favorites.

#New #York

#Yes, the ball will be dropping in #Times #Square and there will be some celebration, but the events are closed to the public. The show is going on for the annual national broadcasts on several stations, so even though no one is waiting for hours in the freezing cold, you can still see the events unfold as we count down to midnight.

The #Angels

There will be no public fireworks this year in #Los #Angeles, which is under a stay-at-home order. #But residents can tune in to a virtual countdown party headlined by DJ #Steve #Aoki, billed as “the biggest virtual NYE dance party on the #West #Coast.”

#Dubai, #United #Arab #Emirates

New Year's fireworks celebrations are seen above the Dubai skyline with the Burj Al Arab (R) and Burj Khalifa (L), the world's tallest building, on December 31, 2019.
#Everything is a go in #Dubai to ring in the new year. There are at least 11 places to watch the sky light up on #December 31, and everyone who comes from out of town to view them must be #Covid-19-negative.

#Rio de #Janeiro

#Rio has canceled fireworks displays and is restricting access to its beaches — including the party hot spot of #Copacabana — in order to avoid crowds. #Instead, there will be an online broadcast of celebrations.

#Sydney

New Year's Eve fireworks erupt over Sydney's Harbour Bridge and Opera House during the fireworks show on January 1, 2020.
#Sydney is forgoing its traditional public showstopping #New #Year’s #Eve events for smaller celebrations that will be publicly broadcast. #Instead of a huge fireworks show, there will be a smaller display over the #Sydney #Harbour #Bridge at midnight.

#Madrid

#Unfortunately, people in this usually vibrant city will have to eat their grapes at home this year. The cultural tradition is usually part of a huge event in the city, but because of #Covid-19, that will not be the case for 2020.

#Edinburgh, #Scotland

Fireworks are launched from Edinburgh Castle at midnight during the 2020 Hogmanay New Year celebrations.
#Scotland’s famous #New #Year’s #Eve celebration will not be taking place in person this year, but it will be happening online. #Edinburgh’s #Hogmanay will include “#Doctor #Who” actor #David #Tennant; the #Scots #Makar, or national poet, #Jackie #Kay; #Celtic fusion band #Niteworks; and #Scottish actors #Lorne #MacFadyen and #Siobhan #Redmond. The event is free to everyone worldwide.

#New #Orleans

The #Big #Easy is taking it easy this year. #It will still host its portion of “#Dick #Clark’s #New #Year’s #Rockin’ #Eve with #Ryan #Seacrest,” but the events will be closed to the public.

#Las #Vegas

Fireworks illuminate the skyline over the Las Vegas Strip during an eight-minute pyrotechnics show put on by Fireworks by Grucci titled "America's Party 2020."

The big fireworks in the #City of #Lights is off this year, but #New #Year’s celebrations at #Fremont #Street and the #Plaza #Hotel are still a go. The hotel still plans to set off fireworks at midnight, and of course so do the locals. #Even without the main display, if you are visiting the city or live there, the sky should be bright somewhere nearby.

#Paris

There will be no public events held for those celebrating the new year in #Paris, but there will be a livestreamed concert in #Notre #Dame #Cathedral by composer and performer #Jean-Michel #Jarre for everyone to watch.
