Philly fireworks draw thousands to welcome the new year with a bang
January 1, 2020
Revelers lined the banks of the Delaware River Tuesday evening to watch the annual fireworks displays. Thousands lined the river’s parks and venues and gathered on rooftops and balconies to welcome the new decade.
For photojournalist David Jackson, beginning the new year viewing the fireworks has been a tradition for decades.
Mount Airy couple Bruce Major and Jennifer Brown saw the display as an opportunity to create a family tradition with their young son.
