UAE capital Abu Dhabi is set to celebrate the New Year with a 40-minute fireworks display for the Sheikh Zayed Festival that will set three Guinness World Records.
The spectacular fireworks show will take place as part of New Year’s Eve celebrations in Al Wathba, according to the Festival’s Higher Organising Committee.
The fireworks will break three world records – volume, duration, and form. Last year, two records were set by the 35-minute fireworks of the New Year’s Eve celebration.
Additionally, the drone show will write ‘Welcome 2022’ in the sky for the first time in history. The organizers point out that such a feature would mark a world-first. Leading up to the fireworks show, Emirati singer Eida Al Menhali and Iraqi artist Ali Saber will perform.
In addition to these, there will be a host of other events, dances, and activities to celebrate the new year.
Festival organizers intend to enhance Abu Dhabi’s standing as a tourist and culture destination in the region by celebrating the UAE’s heritage and civilisation through the Sheikh Zayed Festival, which runs until April 1, 2022.
