Melbourne, Dec 27: Sydney Harbor in Australia is set to have the world's largest New Year's Eve party with thousand dollars worth of fireworks ready to burst overhead as a gigantic lighting array illuminates the Harbor Bridge.

The celebrations, set to take place on Dec 31, will for the first time have fireworks displays that are computer designed, the Daily Telegraph reported.

And organizers of the Harbor festivities promise it will be bigger than New York, Paris or Berlin.

Central to this year's show will be a 36sqm layered light platform installed on the side of the Bridge, which will beam out during the 12-minute midnight display.

One man who will be a keen observer is Fortunato Foti, the fireworks director. In charge for the past 11 years, he said this year will have never-before-seen pyrotechnics, a year in development.
