From New York's Times Square to the San Francisco Waterfront, 2016 began with spectacular fireworks shows across the U.S.
The San Francisco skyline lit up over the Bay Bridge as hundreds of thousands of revelers counted down to midnight to watch the 15 minute show.
Police reported no major problems with every available officer out patrolling the streets.
In Times Square in New York, an estimated one million people watched the ball drop with more than one ton of confetti used to welcome 2016.
Performers included big names like Carrie Underwood and Demi Lovato.
