Details have been announced about this year’s New Year’s Eve fireworks display in Downtown Dubai, organised by property giant Emaar.

The display on December 31 will highlight the monumental achievements and futuristic developments of the nation, according to a statement.

The pyrotechnics display will bring to life several milestone moments and artistic interpretations in fireworks of a falcon flying high, swirling comets, and Arabian dance forms, among others.

In an ode to the Expo 2020 Dubai, the fireworks sequence will also recreate the design of the global event’s logo, inspired by the 4,000-year-old ring discovered by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President & Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, at the Sarouq Al Hadeed site.

Other crescendos include the midnight moment that ushers in 2017 followed by colourful brush strokes enveloping Burj Khalifa, the global icon. The finale of the event will be a display in pyrotechnics celebrating Dubai’s new futuristic icon.

In washes of rainbow colours, specialised red and white comet shows, and LED shows, the pyrotechnics will be displayed from Burj Khalifa, Dubai Opera and various other buildings in Downtown Dubai. More info
