Waterfall displays in Sydney New Year's Eve fireworks show

SYDNEY, Dec. 29 — A fiery waterfall would flow from the Sydney Harbour Bridge in the Sydney New Year's Eve fireworks show, organizers revealed on Wednesday.

The bridge would also be decorated with a firework bow tie as more than 7,000 kilograms of explosive devices would be used in its "best celebration to date", organizers said.

The huge "O" which marked U.S. TV chatshow queen Oprah Winfrey's arrival in the city would also play a part as more than 1.5 million people flock to the city for one of the world's best parties, they said.

Fireworks technicians had their budget increased, taking the event's total spend to more than 5 million AU dollars (5.05 million U.S. dollars).

More than 10,000 pyrotechnic shells, 20,000 shooting comets and 100,000 individual pyrotechnic effects will be fired from the bridge.

Sydney New Year's Eve Fireworks director Fortunato Foti said on Wednesday, the event would be the envy of the world, adding it's still the "biggest and best". (PNA/Xinhua) DCT/utb
