Downtown Dubai along with Emaar is all set to illuminate the sky this NYE. Visitors can watch the spectacular fireworks at the world’s tallest man-made structure. Colourful and attractive, this event is the world’s most fascinating and most watched New Year’s celebrations.
Downtown Dubai along with Emaar will showcase tonnes of colourful explosives and will light up Dubai’s skyline to welcome 2016 with a large number of firework displays across the city.
Downtown Dubai will begin the celebrations at midnight, with the world-famous display at Burj Khalifa. A second display will commence at Burj Al Arab at 12:09 and then Jumeirah Beach Residence’s The Beach will close the fireworks display at 12:16.
According to the organisers The Burj Khalifa fireworks’ theme will symbolise Dubai as a city of the future. Spectators can also look forward to an audio-visual display with LED lights and lasers. The 20-minute display will be streamed live on YouTube.
Other than the official fireworks, many other interesting events are also scheduled at Atlantis The Palm hotel and Global Village. Atlantis The Palm is planning a 10-minute fireworks display, synchronised to music. A pyrotechnic display will also spell out the word Atlantis in the sky. Global Village will welcome the new year with a fireworks display that will commemorate its 20th anniversary. The Beach at Jumeirah Beach Residence will start its celebrations at 17:00 with entertainment acts including fire breathers and acrobats — entrance is free.
During the 2014 new year’s celebration, Dubai set the world record for the largest firework display with 479,651 shells released in a six-minute show. Authorities have recommended everyone to take public transport to the venues, with the Roads and Transport Authority planning to extend the operational hours of the Dubai Metro.
