Organized by the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB), the Hong Kong New Year Countdown Celebrations 2018 will be launched at the Victoria Harbour on New Year's Eve. The close of 2017 will surely be celebrated with families and friends enjoying various festivities.

Fireworks can be discharged on December 31, 2017 starting at 5 p.m. until 1 a.m. January 1, 2018.

There are several local ordinances governing the use of fireworks within city limits.

"If you found a place in the unincorporated part of the county, make sure you have the property owner's permission".

Some people like to ring in the New Year with a bang, but the city of Round Rock explicitly prohibits the sale or use of any fireworks.

It is also prohibited within city limits to sell, use, or possess reloadable fireworks and bottle rockets.

According to the National Fire Protection Association, fireworks cause an estimated 18,500 fires in the USA each year, with emergency rooms across the country reportedly treating an estimated 11,900 for fireworks-related injuries in 2015.

"We've got the fireworks at Mindarie Marina but it's an early evening, so we are not expecting any issues there".

"If you do choose to shoot consumer fireworks, please exercise extreme caution, strictly follow the instructions on your fireworks packaging, and always make sure to have adult supervision", warns Fire Marshal Carl Peas.

Finally, our sibling site Eater Austin has the scoop on the best restaurants, bars, and parties for ringing in the New Year, from dinner spots to midnight bashes to the next day's brunch. Wet towels can be used to extinguish small flames.
