Now that covid is easing, the big festivals are returning, and Sydney’s Vivid festival of light has celebrated its comeback in a spectacular way.

The opening weekend featured a stunning light show over Sydney Harbour made with 600 drones.

The aerial display set against a brilliantly lit Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House was the largest drone show in the Southern Hemisphere.

The collaboration with Paramount+ started with the drones flying into position then showing a 5 second countdown before launching into its display of iconic characters from the streaming giant's catalogue.

Images included the Starship Enterprise, Spongebob Squarepants, Paw Patrol, a fighter jet, NCIS: Sydney logo and South Park.

For people concerned about the environmental impact of fireworks, a drone light display might be the answer.
