Happy New Year, Nairobi: 2016 City fireworks display

Happy New Year guys... I hope your 2016 is going easy so far. What a year 2015 was, ey?

Since it's my first blog post of 2016 I thought it would be great to start with a bang... No... not in reference to the idiom that means "to begin with considerable excitement"... I have to admit that I am pretty excited about this year though... 

I'm not one to make resolutions but I would like to shoot more and post more this year... And so I did.. At 12:00am on January first 2016 I was up and ready (Not really) to start the year on a high note.

The event of the year was happening in the middle of the city and it was Totally Sold Out. It's a gospel event held by Kubamba Crew that happens every year to cross over from December 31st... With it comes the biggest fireworks display in the city.

By 11:00pm I was set and ready with a few friends, waiting for the countdown (Which I missed). They really went big from the start with all types of fireworks designs (From birds, to disco balls to the usual palm tree design)

Here are a few of my favorites from the show. I obviously had to remain in the same spot not to miss a beat but I rather enjoyed the show. 

Enjoy. As always, feel free to comment below with your thoughts. Happy New Year.

Aaaaaaand the first few fireworks were lit.. They went big from the start

I loved these particular sparks.. I called them dancing birds

The unforgettable and classic palm tree sparks

I called these ones "The Boomerangs"

I called this one "The Sparkling Dandelion"... Haha

By this time of the night things were quieting down...

Then BOOOOOOM... Out of nowhere... The Grand Finale was over our heads

And we said thank you NAIROBI... What a show... Happy New Year 2016

And this was from the 2014-2015 Finale
