I was about 3 or 4 and I saw them on TV, but the first time I saw fireworks in person was in Sydney when I was 14.
Can't remember how old I was - probably about four - but it would have been at one of my parents' friend's parties on bonfire night.
As a child, in Sydney before living there.
I would have been 2 or 3. Back then it was legal to light your own so we always had fireworks on New Years Eve.
Probably when I was 4 - while on the Nile cruise with my parents on NYE! Best experience of my life!
I can't really remember when, but it was probably during the Skyshows we used to have in Adelaide.
I was born in Sydney and we had them every year so I guess the first time I saw them I would have been around 5 however I do not remember this.
I just remember that every year we gathered somewhere to watch the fireworks.

Would've been 'Guy Fawkes' Night, 5th Nov. each year til it was banned. I was probably 4 or 5.
Then each year at the Royal Show, which to a 'litttlie' was just brilliant! Dad used to take me to Military Tattoos' as well.

I still like watching fireworks displays now, but it's been ruined by the stupid music, which is NEVER synchronised, & sounds ridiculous!

I VHS tape NYE & watch them next day with NO volume on TV! Much better!
When I was tiny. Back in the UK we celebrated Guy Fawkes every 5 November. The old saying went "Remember, remember the 5th of November - Gunpowder, Treason and Plot" about Guy Fawkes and his cohorts planning to blow up the British Parliament.

We used to have bonfires with Guy Fawkes effigies which were burnt on the bonfire. Kids used to put a lot of effort into making their "Guys" and would roll them on wheelbarrows through the streets looking for spare cash from passersby. In those days a really exciting time for kids as our parents would bake potatoes in the bonfire embers and the kids would end up with blackened faces from the ash in the fire after eating the potatoes.
Oops - missed the point of the question. Of course we had a multitude of fireworks which absolutely delighted the kids with the bangs, shrieks, whoosh of rockets, rain fountains, catherine wheels, and the sparklers for the more timid kids.
