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!!
