NYE set to be a blast with new fireworks

What do Silk Flowers, Flying Dragons, Crackling Nishiki Kamuros and Silver Pine Tails have in common?

Chances are that unless you were in the pyrotechnics industry you wouldn’t be able to say that they are some of the special new fireworks that will be used as part of the displays at Glenelg and Brighton this New Year’s Eve.

And this year they’ll be going higher and wider than ever before, with a reach of 140 metres into the sky and up to 100 metres in diameter.

Brought to us again by the world-renown Australian company Howard & Sons Pyrotechnics, this year’s display will consist of:

- 3000kg of Fireworks

- 1000 electronic programmed cues

- 3500 individual fireworks effects

- 3 firing systems

- 40 firing modules

- 15 crew members and more than 200 hours of preparing equipment and fireworks

The displays themselves will be programmed using state of the art 3D pyrotechnic software and will use the best fireworks available from China, Spain, USA, Japan and Australia.

The 9.30pm fireworks at Brighton and Glenelg Jetties will also be synched to music.
