As the first global city in the world to welcome in the New Year, Auckland, New Zealand's landmarks will be the stars of the New Year’s Eve show again this year. The Sky Tower and Vector Lights on the Harbour Bridge are set to bring in the new year with spectacular shows coordinated with Tāmaki Paenga Hira Auckland Museum and Te Ara I Whiti The Light Path.
At midnight, Vector Lights on the Auckland Harbour Bridge and SkyCity’s fireworks will welcome in 2021 with a spectacular five-minute show.
Auckland Mayor Phil Goff says the light show is a great way for the city to come together to mark the end of a challenging year.
“Thanks to the incredible efforts of all New Zealanders to eliminate COVID-19, we’re in the fortunate position of being able to live our lives relatively normally. People can go to work and school, gather with friends, and our economy is one of the most open in the world.
“That’s worth celebrating, and this year’s spectacular display will be a perfect opportunity for Aucklanders to do that.”
This year, Vector Lights has added an additional 40 search lights, taking the New Year’s Eve light show to a magnificent new level.
Vector Chief Executive Officer, Simon Mackenzie, says: “It’s fantastic to partner with Auckland Council to add 40 search lights to the Vector Lights display for a stunning New Year’s Eve show, all powered by a mix of leading solar, battery and peer to peer technology. This sustainable light show will bid 2020 farewell and welcome in 2021 in spectacular fashion.”
