    No fireworks for National Day?? That’s seditious separatist mind set. Whoever thought about canceling it should be thrown in jail. This is totally against the NSL.

    I know the government isn't going to answer, but what is the covid risk of fireworks?

    Same reason why people are doing virtual conferences ... we need to move on and do virtual fireworks - safer and less pollution.

    I love fireworks as much as the next person and the reason for cancelling it yet again is BS as always, but at least man's best friend will appreciate another year without them, I guess.

    Many cities around the world dropping fireworks in favour of cheaper and more eco friendly drone shows
