The City Council of Prague 2 has agreed to organize this New Year’s fireworks on January 1st, in Bastion Prague area.
The best spectacle of New Year’s fireworks will be seen from the Prague Congress Centre, Vyšehrad, and Nusle.
It supports the campaign “I Will Not Shoot”, regarding the risks of amateur use of pyrotechnics and the impact on the life and health of people and animals. “We are sure that most Prague citizens are bothered by the amateur firing of pyrotechnics, which is mostly uncontrolled. Regarding this, we will hold a 15-minute organized display of professional fireworks to celebrate the New Year celebration,” explained Jan Korseska, Deputy Mayor of Prague 2 for transport and finance.
Although the city council administration agreed in August that this year’s celebration of the new year would be without fireworks, the organizers of previous years decided to keep this tradition.
They organized a transparent account and asked the support of a district for a place to fire fireworks safely. In the end, they managed to agree with Prague 2. Fireworks will be launched from the bastion near the Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary and St. Charles the Great.
The organizers are asking supporters to contribute to allow creating a proper New Year’s Fireworks display.
“We are convinced that professional fireworks are part of the New Year celebrations around the world. Fireworks preparations will also include the campaign “I Will Not Shoot”, which should lead people to not considering firing amateur pyrotechnics during New Year’s Eve.”
Let’s keep the firework art and the tradition of New Year’s together and pacify the end of the year and the madness in the streets with #IWILLNOTSHOOT campaign.
