Hundreds of cars and thousands of people lined the streets and shorelines around Quidi Vidi lake Tuesday evening to watch the annual city of St. John's New Year's Eve fireworks display.

Despite the cold temperatures, the near non-existent wind made for a comfortable viewing with many people standing outside vehicles instead of huddled inside trying to keep warm.

The fifteen minute event was also preceded by many home-launched pyrotechnics shows that could be seen all along the city skyline as midnight approached.

    How much of my tax money is going up in smoke? First this Bannerman Park nonsense then this?!!! When is big government going to start cutting taxes for those of us who choose to work instead of all this nonsense? If I wanted this uncontrolled goverment spending I wouldn't have voted for O'Keefe.

    It would of been nice to attend with the family but the streets were so unsafe due to the city refusing to remove any snow that we felt it would be suicide to leave the house. I hope everyone who risked their lives to see the fire works had a safe and happy new years. Shame on the city of St. John's! The provincial govt is going to have to step in soon as this is a huge public safety issue being completely ignored by the city.
