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.
Who needs fireworks when you have drones, you may ask? It’s a good question.
For people concerned about the environmental impact of fireworks, a drone light display might be the answer.
