Ten tonnes of fireworks will be fired from the rooftops of 17 high-rises across the CBD, as well as numerous other sites across the city.
"We're firing from one side of the city skyline to the other," Mr Howard said."There's not any part of that canvas that will be untouched [by] pyrotechnic paints on the night."As long as you're in a position at midnight where you can see the city skyline, you're going to see a great show at midnight," Mr Howard said, adding that the pm family fireworks would be best viewed from Yarra Park.
The display will feature a number of effects, including a "blood red" display.
And for those heading to the midnight fireworks, Mr Brady said to expect "big, brash and loud"."I just like them big," Mr Brady said."We have an opportunity here on City Hill, to pop some big puppies and that's what we're about tonight."With temperatures hovering around the mid 20s tonight, authorities and event organisers have warned revellers to stay hydrated during the festivities.
Meanwhile Kim is disgusted that her mother Kath is dating butcher Kel Knight. Kim quits smoking but her increased eating means she cannot fit into her bridesmaid's dress.He said the fireworks displays would most likely go ahead even if there was a total fire ban in place across Melbourne."We do apply for an exemption in the City of Melbourne, and we have done that numerous times in the past 15 years," Mr Howard said."It would only be in catastrophic fire conditions that the Melbourne Fire Brigade captains wouldn't allow it to proceed."Fireworks have lit up Mr Howard's family tree for four generations — his great grandfather, Sydney Howard, started manufacturing pyrotechnics in Newcastle, New South Wales, in 1922."The fireworks that he was getting imported on slow boats from England were all wet and duds by the time they got here so he started making his own," Mr Howard said.Ms Cataldo also urged revellers to remember both the Civic Square concert and the Base in the Place show at Garema Place were non-alcoholic events."Try and keep in mind New Year's Eve is a family friendly event," Ms Cataldo said."It's an opportunity for us to reflect on 2016 and ring in 2017 in a fun and safe way." That message was shared by ACT Policing, who warned Canberrans there would be no tolerance of anti-social behaviour.
Superintendent Ben Cartwright said there would also be a tent set up in Civic with for anyone who feels they have had too much to drink and needs some time out.
