Sydney Harbour in Australia is set to have the world's largest New Year's Eve party with hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of fireworks ready to burst overhead as a gigantic lighting array illuminates the Harbour Bridge.
The celebrations, set to take place on December 31, will for the first time have fireworks displays that are computer designed, the Daily Telegraph reported.
And organisers of the Harbour festivities promise it will be bigger than New York, Paris or Berlin.
Central to this year's show will be a 36sqm layered light platform installed on the side of the Bridge, which will beam out during the 12-minute midnight display.
One man who will be a keen observer is Fortunato Foti, the fireworks director. In charge for the past 11 years, he said this year will have never-before-seen pyrotechnics, a year in development.
