People gathered at Sydney Harbour Saturday (31 DEC. 2016) to usher in 2017 with a fireworks display over the Australian city’s iconic bridge and opera house.

The event also sent up a dazzling tribute to 2016’s fallen icons with fireworks honoring the late singer David Bowie and late actor Gene Wilder, becoming the first major city to bid a bittersweet adieu to a turbulent year.

The glittering display over Sydney’s famed harbor and bridge featured Saturn and star-shaped fireworks set to “Space Oddity,” the classic song by Bowie – one of the seemingly endless parade of beloved entertainers who died in 2016.

Wilder was also honored as the bridge lit up in a rainbow of colors while a song from Wilder’s famed film “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” played.
