NYE08

NYE 07 sunset
(haven't got the photo for NYE 08. Photo from the last sunset from year 2007 in Sydney)

It's time to count down for 2009. Here's a sneak peek of this year's lighting (secret symbol) of Sydney Harbour Bridget. Recorded by 7News few nights ago during a rehearsal.

The special lighting is usually shown at end of NYE08 midnight fireworks.

QuickTime: NYE08 sneak peek

As usual, there will be a number of events to celebrate the new year. Starting at 9pm for the 9pm Family Fireworks (for those who don't want to stay up all until midnight), then Harbour of Light Parade. At midnight, the most anticipated event - Midnight Fireworks. Since this is a big event for Sydney, there will be a number of road closures (Don't worry, won't be as much as for Mr George W. Bush's visit during APEC) as well as some vantage points. Check this this page for information. Try to arrive early.

The City of Sydney has more information on the NYE08 at this page.

If you are not going out for the Sydney NYE08 Fireworks, don't forget to watch Prison Break tonight at 10.30pm to 11.30pm.

I'm looking forward to seeing Sydney's fireworks again this year. I still have the video you posted last year saved somewhere.
