ISAAC Newton said: "What goes up, must come down", and US band Blood, Sweat and Tears used the words in a song in 1969.
But the saying also held true for Monday's New Year on Royal event at Launceston's Royal Park.
Although it was after 2am yesterday before many organising committee members left the park that hosted between 6000 and 7000 revellers, most of them were back before 8am removing tables and chairs and taking down marquees and boundary fencing that had gone up just a day before.
The Festivale committee organises the event and chairwoman Lou Clark said that members had spent the past few months putting the program together.
"It was a great night - everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves, there were no issues with safety and we were delighted with the number of people there, although it'll be a couple of weeks before we know exact numbers," Ms Clark said.
"There were families and kids everywhere and people came well- prepared with picnic blankets, chairs and cushions.
"Stallholders did really well - there were some issues with the length of the queues earlier in the night, but people were very patient. The fireworks displays were fantastic, the guys did a fantastic job for the city and there were plenty of `oohs' and `ahs' during the displays."
Ms Clark said that the Apex Club had taken responsibility for keeping the site clean and tidy during the event and cleaning up after midnight, so there was not too much cleaning needed yesterday.
