MIAMI – Final preparations for the New Year's Eve public parties in South Florida continued Thursday.

DOWNTOWN MIAMI: A 13-minute fireworks display was in the works for those facing Biscayne Bay at midnight.

Walter Zucca lives on a condominium with a view to Bayfront Park in downtown Miami.

"Well the view is going to be great, because I'm going to be way up there listening to the party and the music that's going to happen down here," Zucca said.

There won't be any road closures in downtown Miami, but officials were encouraging revelers to plan to use public transportation. -- Local 10 News reporter Sanela Sabovic reports from the Intercontinental Hotel. Follow her on Twitter
