Revellers who had gathered on the banks of the River Thames in London were treated to the city's first-ever multi-sensory extravaganza which saw them showered with fragrant peach snow, strawberry and cherry mist, edible banana confetti and orange bubbles.
It is thought that around 250,000 people witnessed the innovative display, put on by Vodafone and the Mayor of London, which covered an area equivalent to three football pitches.
Glittering spectacles were put on elsewhere in the world's major cities. Click on photo below for full gallery.
