Sirocco kicks off 2012 with a bang

HAPPY NEW YEAR: 2012 kicked off with a spectacular fireworks show near Alston this morning

Alston, NCD, Jan 1 – Sirocco has entered the year 2012 with a major fireworks show and a music party, with high hopes that the new year will exceed a “fantastic” 2011.

The NCD NYe party kicked off just before 9:15 last night with music and refreshments for those attending. Organisers have hailed the party a “success”, and a second party may be held at the end of this year.

There was a lull in the festivities at around 11:30 as partygoers left Alston to attend a nearby fireworks display at midnight.

“The fireworks were a great end to a great year and a great start to an even greater year.” Premier Anderson said.

The party resumed at around 1am for another hour before ending.

Sirocco is the first MicroWiki nation to see in the new year due to being two minutes ahead Zealandia’s unusual timezone of GMT+11:58 (+12:58 DST), although outside of the community it shares the title with Tauranga micronation Walkoria and Hawke’s Bay micronation Arborea.

    In Freedomia, it’s 5:28 PM. So you’re in 2012, we’re in 2011. Odd.

  2. The title is an ingenious example of double entendre.
