Shanghai Fireworks Banned on NYE

December 30th, 2010  |  by  |  Published in Blog  |  3 Comments

China may have invented fireworks, but it won’t be firing any in Shanghai this new years eve. According to “Popular New Year countdown celebrations at the Bund and Xujiahui areas have been canceled due to safety concerns in the wake of last month’s devastating high-rise blaze in the city.”

As we all know, fireworks are dangerous cheap oakleys and should be only used by professionals. However, it seems that while organised firework events may be banned, individuals and amateur pyromaniacs have been given the green light to launch as many as they like. So long as they’re not near “commercial areas, airports, hospitals, schools, and social utilities.”

Have your NYE plans just changed upon reading this? Let us know how you’re going to celebrate instead.

    I was planning on watching them but I guess I’m going to be forced to pay over the odds on entrance to some glitzy club now. This sux!
