Fireworks-free zone and pickpockets
Residents have been asked not to bring fireworks with them to the event since the city centre will be a fireworks-free zone. Event organisers have also advised attendees to be weary of pickpockets that may be active during the event. Phones and valuables should be secured properly and one should avoid putting any items in back pockets. If you wish to report a theft, you can file a police report.
