Replace Fireworks with Drone Fireworks for all public events

Replace Fireworks with Drone Fireworks (for such events as Matariki, New Years, Diwali, Lunar New Year) by 2023. Drone fireworks are gaining popularity as such we should use Drone displays as a replacement for fireworks. This would help mitigate concerns about firework-related air pollution and environmental damage, noise pollution and anxiety trauma to pets.
