2021 New Years celebrations across the United States as 15,000 revelers fill Times Square as Americans greet in 2022


[ad_1]

THOUSANDS of revelers greeted the New Year in Times Square in New York City as the US East Coast struck 2022.

The New Years Eve celebration in Times Square continued with a small crowd.

Only about 15,000 people with proof of vaccination and wearing face masks have been allowed to rally around Times Square to contain the spread of Omicron.

Meanwhile, Miley Cyrus hosted a New Years Eve party in Miami, Florida, and Nashville, with music stars like Lady A performing at a concert at the Big Bash Bicentennial National Mall State Park.

The UK has already greeted in 2022 with a spectacular fireworks display and pyrotechnics show that lit up famous London locations to mark the end of 12 difficult months.

The “spectacular” fireworks display traveled through London to mark midnight and ended with a traditional performance by Auld Lang Syne performed by the West End musical choir.

The stunning Friday display was powered by lights, drones and fireworks as it marked the biggest moments in Britain over the past 12 months.

To celebrate, we bring you live updates from celebrations around the world, from fireworks in Sydney and Beijing, to parties in London, New York, Rio de Janeiro and everyone in between.
