The fireworks set off in Dubai on New Year’s Eve were amazing, even to the most worldly of pyrotechnicians. Event organizers put together an awesome display of more than 400,0000 firework in a successful attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the ‘Largest Firework Display’.”
The United Arab Emirates city state, home to the world’s tallest tower, largest man-made island and one of the world’s busiest airports, hosted the six-minute firework show over the two manmade islands in the harbor. A seemingly endless display of colorful fireworks designed specifically for the even went off beautiful to a choreographed musical soundtrack. In addition, a spectacle of dancing water fountains mesmerized the crowd.
This kind of professional firework show isn’t a one man gig, it literally takes a village. More than 200 pyrotechnicians worked together to launch off the nearly half-million fireworks from 400 locations including the centerpiece, 2,716-foot Burj Khalifa tower.
Known for its sparkling, high-rise shoreline, this capital has obviously bounced back from the global financial crises that began in 2009 – from the looks of the firework show, it was all glitz and glamour all the way.
