New Years Eve 2009/2010/2011/2012
BoomBoom Fireworks had the privilege of putting on a spectacular fireworks display for the new years eve festival, Coromandel Gold in the beautiful surrounds of Coromandel’s Ohuka Farm.
This event included some of New Zealand’s biggest acts and pulled in a strong crowd of over 10,000 people. Tickets sold out quickly only weeks after the festival’s announcement.
Careful planning of the fireworks display was required to take into account the fire ban that was in force in the area. We spent much time liaising with the Department of Conservation and local and rural fire safety to ensure the fire risk was well managed.
Selecting the firing location was also very important. We needed to set up in an area where the fireworks would to create maximum visual effect for the audience, yet keeping them a surprise, all whilst maintaining our exclusion zone safety distances.
Headline act Shapeshifter effortlessly got the crowd roaring and as midnight struck we launced into our high impact display.
We wanted to create a fireworks display that matched the vibrancy of the festival, something that would keep the crowd on a high while they celebrated the arrival of 2010.
The highlight was firing the giant 10 inch star shell to end the display, and hearing the crowd go absolutely wild.
We would like to thank the organisers and our crew on the night for a great job. Overall it was a very successful event.
