As we know Dubai is known for glitter, glamour, beauty and full of achievements like the World’s tallest tower, Burj Khalifa.
This year it planned to break another record by creating the largest fireworks show ever. And it was indeed successful.
The fireworks covered iconic landmarks of the city including Burj Khalifa, Burj Al Arab and Atlantis the Palm.
The city’s coastline was light up with a flying falcon made out of fireworks that moved across a massive man-made palm-shaped island alongside a countdown in fireworks.
The six-minute extravaganza included 500,000 fireworks from 400 firing locations, all synchronized by 100 computers from stations across the city. The display covered 48 kilometers of sea front.
Millions witnessed the spectacular fireworks.“Ten months in planning, over 500,000 fireworks were used during the display which lasted around six minutes, with Guinness World Records adjudicators on hand to confirm that a new record had been set,” the Guinness website said.
All we can say is Happiest New Year Dubai. If the start was so wonderful, we wonder how the whole year will go. Bravo Dubai, you make us proud !
