With millions of visitors - both residents and tourists - building the
excitement in Downtown Dubai, the Burj Khalifa fireworks display was a
true spectacle of artistic creativity. Ten stunningly different
firework sequences on Burj Khalifa marked the run-up to a musical
countdown for the New Year.
Each display also told the world a story - of the UAE's inspiring
success, Dubai's positivity and ambition, and the design narrative of
Burj Khalifa, which is choreographed to the captivating melody of
symphonic orchestra music of Downtown Dubai, 'The Centre of Now.'
Abdulla Lahej, Group Chief Executive Officer, Emaar Properties, said:
"The celebrations in Dubai now serve as a true benchmark for New Year's
Eve galas across the world. Colourful, spectacularly planned, and
creatively executed, the events also underline the vision of His
Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President and
Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, to ensure a positive, inspirational,
and high-growth environment in the city, for people from around the
Starting off with a dramatic countdown through a display of effects
racing up to the pinnacle of Burj Khalifa, 828 metres high, the
fireworks began with spectacular sequences including a colourful salute
to the nation with the colours of the UAE National Flag. Silver pearls
lend an unmatched ambience in a sparkling celebration of Dubai's
success, especially with its win to host the World Expo 2020. Another
stunning display was the tribute to Burj Khalifa, with the fireworks
evolving into petals, wrapping the tower much like the Hymenocallis
desert flower, which inspired the design of the building.
In the grand finale, fireworks lit up every direction dramatically and a
golden lattice formed across the sky. Rainbow effects filled all over
Downtown Dubai as Dubai ushered in 2014.
