Where to watch New Year's Eve 2017 fireworks in Austin

Boasting a fireworks display co-designed by actor Hugh Jackman, Sydney Harbour will once again host the largest annual New Year's Eve Countdown celebration in the world.

-Do not point or throw fireworks at other people.

"It's really hot but I think it's worth it if we get an wonderful photo", he said.

Sydney, Australia has welcomed in the new year with a rainbow display celebrating same-sex marriage. There are also free, family-friendly activities happening from 6 p.m. until the fireworks at 9 p.m.

There are two designated times during the year that you can legally purchase fireworks in the state.

"(The fireworks) always send a message that Sydney is a stunning city with a handsome climate and a wonderful harbour, but most importantly we're a harmonious community and we're multicultural", City of Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore said. "We're looking to accommodate a lot of guests", owner Paul Kulik said.

Another alternative is to book a ticket for a nearby party, which will get you close to the fireworks without being in one of the designated zones. "Don't let kids do it", Faulkner said. After you have shot something, it's best to put it in a bucket of water to make sure it has completely gone out.

Furthermore, Faulkner advises to keep pets inside when discharging them because they can be startled by them and run away or hide.
