Are there any special event/projects related to the end of the year or beginning of the new year in your country?

Many places there is fireworks.

Are those events consider/manage like a project?

In Canada I believe there are fireworks too, but nothing out of the ordinary. Anything special in Quebec ?

In the U.S. the big event is the New Year's Eve bash in Time Square, NYC. Also, on New Years Day, there are parades in some of the cities. And in Philadelphia, is the Mummer's parade - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mummers_Parade. As you'll see when following the link, there is certainly much to accomplish the span b/t parades for preparation.

Well yes it is treated like a project with few months preparation ahead of time that depends on the size of the laser lighting and fire works for example look at Burj khalifa
you can watch the video here https://www.khaleejtimes.com/nation/dubai/...un-for-3-months

Rami one of the year end (Can't remember) we were in Montreal and it was so nice and vibrant, Though we are one country but we felt like we were in Europe.

In Sydney, the New Year fire works celebration is the major event that takes a lot of planning and co-ordination between a number of entities. These include (but not limited) to the City of Sydney Council, Police and Emergency Services, Transport for New South Wales including Transport Management Centre, Public Transport (trains, buses, ferries and light rail), taxis, NSW Roads and Maritime Services and the media; in addition to businesses. A quick look at the website would provide an idea https://www.sydneynewyearseve.com
Here is also a link to the 12:00 fire works. Happy New Year! https://youtu.be/KKtyz6F8oIw

Joao,

Your right large gathering requires security and everything.
In New York, they have the event on TimeSquare.

any event in your region? manage like a project!

Is it a project or is it a process?

For example, the annual New Year's Eve ball drop in New York City could be considered an operational process as the degree of uncertainty should have dropped after the first dozen or so times they've done it. Yes, every year they might tweak a variable here or there, but they are still following a very well established "playbook".

Kiron,

You are right some are a repeat with a twist from year to year. Some are a new team, a full rework, since not much from previous year can be reuse.

Hi Rami,

There are many small events, I can think of one that uses to bee real big call "Bye Bye 201x" that celebrated is 50th episode this year. It is a review of the year with many sketches.
Always a few months in preparation. The concept may be getting old, but it is still one most don't skip, I don't watch it live.

there is a review show from Toronto, must be some other events.
