Happy New Year



We watched two sets of these, from their balcony. There was a family display at 9pm that the kids got to see (before passing out an hour later) and then a half hour long huge display, with explosions happening at ten different points around the harbor, at midnight. It's accompanied by more kid friendly music at the early one and they played a High School Musical 2 song about summer that sent Jesse into his own explosive display of joy. He kept saying, "I'm dreaming, this doesn't seem real..."

It was fantastic. They prepare this display for 14 months. For really cool pictures, go here.

Happy New Year to you, wherever and whenever midnight falls, or fell.
