TOP LIVE EVENTS
New Year's Eve is a unique time of year, the one party that is
celebrated all around the world with a 24 hour long explosion of
light colour and fireworks as the new year follows the international
time zones around the globe.
Starting in the remote Pacific Islands, Kiribati is the first recognised country to welcome the new year, then the celebrations come to New Zealand and the famous fireworks in Sydney harbour before traversing Asia to Europe and the huge parties in cities such as Paris, Berlin, London and Rome.
The Americas are the last continents to greet the new year, and in the USA in particular this is a cause for tumultuous celebrations, with the iconic Ball Drop in New York's Times Square followed by huge parties from Chocago to Las Vegas to Los Angeles.
The celebrations don't end there though, new year's day sees a number of further events, with parades in particular a popular way to extend the party, and here the focus is on venues including London with their traditional New Year Parade and of course the famous Mummers Parade in Philadelphia.
