New Year celebrations LIVE UPDATES : New Zealand celebrates start of 2018 | New Zealand welcomes 2018 with spectacular fireworks

As 2017 draws to a close, New Zealand is the first among several countries that ushered in the New Year. The country welcomed the year 2018 amidst spectacular fireworks. Fireworks boomed and crackled above city centres and harbours, and party-goers sang, hugged, danced and kissed. In Auckland, New Zealand’s biggest city, tens of thousands gathered around Sky Tower as five minutes of nonstop pyrotechnics exploded from the structure’s upper decks. Meanwhile, Australians will welcome 2018 with a rainbow-themed fireworks in Sydney. At least 1.5 million spectators are expected to witness the pyrotechnics, AFP reported.


New Zealand celebrates start of 2018


New Zealanders have welcomed in 2018 with an amazing firework display from Auckland's Sky Tower. As one of the first countries to welcome the new year, thousands of cheering revellers rang in the New Year at 11am UK time today as multi-coloured fireworks exploded across the city skyline at midnight. Sky City - a casino and event centre in Auckland - was again the epicentre of the country's celebrations with a dramatic fireworks display. A giant digital clock on the tower was counting down to the party before the skyline exploded into a amazing flash of colour. Samoa was the first country in the world to welcome in 2018 an hour earlier.

With only a few hours to go for 2018, preparations are on at all full swing across the world for New Year's Eve celebrations and parties. In many cities, revelers take to the streets to celebrate the arrival of the New Year with the community while some prefer quiet time with family and friends. The New Year obviously arrives at different times for different countries across the globe. New Zealand and Australia are among the first countries to ring in the new year. While Australians will enjoy a rather warm New Year, in Canada, New Year's Eve celebrations will be accompanied by a really, really chilly winter - with some parts even colder than Mars.
