Hong Kong New Year's Eve 2012 Fireworks Live Stream, Victoria Harbour Events NYE

Hong Kong New Year's Eve 2012 Fireworks Live Stream, Victoria Harbour Events NYE

In Hong Kong on New Years Eve, the people usually get together in Central, Causeway Bay and Tsim Sha Tsui to celebrate and to look at the night lights along the harbor. The Times Square shopping mall in Hong Kong also holds their own send-off to the ball drop held at Times Square in New York City. The celebration had been extended to other districts such as Tsuen Wan, Sha Tin, Mong Kok and Kwun Tong by district-wide celebration activities.

From Year 2008, for the last 60 seconds before entering the next year (23:59:00), 60-sec numerical countdown by LED lights with pyrotechnic display effects on the facade of Two International Finance Centre was launched, followed by special firework display of A Symphony of Lights.

For 2011, the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) will mount its most extravagant, most dazzling display ever with the launch of the Hong Kong New Year Countdown Celebrations on December 31 moments before midnight. To ensure global audiences can share in the excitement of spectators in Hong Kong, the HKTB will provide satellite feed of the entire event for use by television broadcasters worldwide.

This year, the HKTB will add new visual effects to its already dazzling pyrotechnics, including numeric patterns for the countdown. The combination of colourful patterns and movements atop Hong Kong's iconic skyscrapers will symbolise a soaring dragon, set to light up the spectacular, world-famous Victoria Harbour.

The New Orleans Saints are a professional American football team based in New Orleans, Louisiana. They are members of the South Division of the National Football Conference (NFC) of the National Football League (NFL).

This live stream will be covering the Saints MNF matchup versus the New York Giants

Location Information:

The Mercedes-Benz Superdome, previously known as the Louisiana Superdome and colloquially known as the Superdome, is a sports and exhibition arena located in the Central Business District of New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. Plans were drawn up in 1967 by the New Orleans modernist architectural firm of Curtis and Davis.

It is home to the NFL's New Orleans Saints, the NCAA's Division I-A Tulane Green Wave football team (the largest football stadium in Conference USA), the R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl, the Allstate Sugar Bowl and, every fourth year, the BCS National Championship game. It is one of the few facilities in the US which can host major sporting events, such as the Super Bowl and the Final Four; as such, given New Orleans' popularity as a tourist destination, whenever it bids to host such an event it routinely makes the "short list" of candidates being considered. It has been chosen to host Super Bowl XLVII in February 2013.

Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting 2011 Live Stream, Justine Bieber, Michael Buble NYC

Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting 2011 Live Stream, Justine Bieber, Michael Buble NYC

Justin Bieber, Tony Bennett, Michael Buble, Cee Lo Green and Faith Hill are among the celebrities set to perform at the festive affair, to be broadcast live on NBC 8-9 p.m. Nov. 30. "Today" show mainstays Al Roker and Savannah Guthrie will host. The Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree is an annual Christmas tree lighting that takes place in New York City's Rockefeller Center, in mid-town Manhattan. The tree is erected and lit in early December or late-November. In recent years, the lighting has been broadcast live nationwide on NBC's Christmas in Rockefeller Center show. The tree, usually a Norway spruce 69 to 100 ft (21 to 30 m) tall, has been put up, with the exception of 1932, every year since 1931. In 2010, the tree was lit on November 30, and is scheduled to remain illuminated until the first week of January, 2011. The tallest Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center was a 100 ft (30 m) foot spruce erected on November 11, 1999 that was being cared for by Cathy and Jim Thomson.

Although the official Christmas tree tradition at Rockefeller Center began in 1933 (the year the 30 Rockefeller Plaza opened), the unofficial tradition began during the Depression-era construction of Rockefeller Center, when workers decorated a smaller 20 ft (6.1 m) balsam fir tree with "strings of cranberries, garlands of paper, and even a few tin cans" on Christmas Eve (December 24, 1931), as recounted by Daniel Okrent in his history of Rockefeller Center. Some accounts have the tree decorated with the tin foil ends of blasting caps. There was no Rockefeller Center Christmas tree in 1932.

Many Rockefeller trees were given to Rockefeller Center by donors. The late David Murbach, Mgr. of the Gardens Division of Rockefeller Center, scouted in a helicopter for the desired tree in areas including Connecticut, Vermont, Ohio, upstate New York, New Jersey, and even Ottawa, Canada. Once a suitable tree is located, a crane supports it while it is cut, and moves it to a custom telescoping trailer that can transport trees up to 125 ft (38 m) tall, although the width of New York City streets passing through Rockefeller Center limits the height of the trees to 110 ft (34 m).
