happy new year!!

Here in Hawaii, New Year’s Eve means fireworks. You don’t need to look at your clock to know when it is midnight. I took this video at midnight last year on New Year’s Eve.

All the aerial fireworks you see in this video are illegal. Pretty tough to enforce this I guess. I live in a townhouse complex where fireworks are not allowed. People generally follow this rule. The noise factor (and smoke factor) in this video would be much different if I lived where fireworks were popping all around me.

Hau’oli Makahiki Hou!! Happy New Year!! Buon Anno!! Tanti Auguri Everyone!!

  1. G: Wow! Just like the Esplanade on the 4th of July – and these are homemade – bet the Hawaii fire department was busy.
    Happy New Year! M

  3. The fireworks were even better this year. There was talk that there would not be as many fireworks due to the economy, but instead I think everyone skipped the legal fireworks and went straight for the illegal aerials. It really was amazing! I could only take about 20 minutes outside though. The smoke was very thick! From what I have seen on the news, only a few minor fires (I did hear the fire trucks roar by about 30 minutes or so after midnight last night). I took video at midnight and it is much better than the video I posted from last year. Not to bore everyone since on video, fireworks seem to all look the same, I will save the video for my next year’s New Year’s Eve post.
    I hope everyone else had a great New Year’s Eve!!
