Huge midnight fireworks displays celebrate the coming of the new year. Most towns in Croatia have public displays in a central square but private parties will also include firecrackers or sparklers, too, and will continue for a long time. Dancing is also popular and many towns have public music and dancing before the fireworks. Poreč, Rovinj, Pula, Umag and Opatija put on huge popular outdoor shows with pop and rock bands. These events can sometimes be seen on television, too.
Don't forget to wear your red underwear to ring in the new year! They say it'll bring you luck in the coming year.
