What Is It?
Abu Dhabi is all set to break the Guinness World Record for the largest sentence ever created in fireworks, according to the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi). That’s right! The New Year fireworks show in the Abu Dhabi Corniche will attempt to spell ‘Happy New Year 2019’, using iron ‘sky towers’ to create letters 40 meters high in different colors and configurations. The record-breaking firework show will be 10 minutes long.
Other displays include Emirates Palace, Yas Marina, and Al Maryah Island, as well as Hazza Bin Zayed Stadium in Al Ain and at the Al Dhafra Festival in Madinat Zayed. There will also be a concert by Egyptian pop star Amr Diab and Lebanese singer Myriam Fares at the Galleria and Promenade on Al Maryah Island on New Year’s Eve in Abu Dhabi. Entry to the event is free but limited to 1,500 visitors on a first come, first serve basis.
