Ring in New Year legally when using fireworks

"We've been lucky so far with the weather so if people don't come out on New Years Eve they probably weren't going to come out anyway".

-Do not point or throw fireworks at other people.

"We're using a quarter of the amount of power that we used four or five years ago and are still getting more light out of it", Mr Ziegler said.

As the clock strikes midnight, the new year is often welcomed by the sights and sounds of fireworks.

"By 6 p.m., there will be a line to the door or out the door and by 9 p.m".

"As far as I am aware, this is the first time the chamber has ever had fireworks on New Year's Eve", Chamber Executive Director Tonya Keesee said.

The forecast on New Year's Eve in the Omaha area calls for temperatures as cold as 15 degrees below zero.

Officials also state that an individual must be at least 18 years of age or older to purchase or use fireworks.

Staff at Memory Fireworks in Horace say although you can only purchase them now, this isn't the only time you can set them off.

-Have a fire extinguisher or a bucket of water on hand to extinguish any incipient fire. "We're looking to accommodate a lot of guests", owner Paul Kulik said.

The evening light show and the midnight fireworks display are also still a go, as is the presentation of Nimidiwin at the nearby Canadian Museum of History.

Nearly 10,000 people have indicated they are interested in attending on the Facebook event page, with this the first fireworks event at the marina in nine years. "Don't let kids do it", Faulkner said.

"For fireworks, getting a few clouds can be beneficial because you can get good reflections off the clouds, which may make the display even better", Bell said. Put them down, then ignite them and walk away.
