Nearly 2,000 drones took to the night sky and illuminated the Huangpu River in Shanghai to welcome in the new year.
They formed various patterns ranging from the Earth to a dragon.
At around midnight, the drones gathered to form a running man. It moved forward, showing the changes and achievements Shanghai has made in the past 40 years.
The show ended with drones forming the Chinese characters of "Zhui Meng" (Dream pursuit).
