If there’s one thing that Dubai does really well, it’s fireworks. So it will be interesting to how the laser show that is replacing the traditional New Year’s Fireworks at Downtown (Burj Khalifa) will fare. I was one of the millions of people who were downtown last year and I have no intention of repeating that effort this year. I might walk a bit farther along from my flat to get a long distance view of the fireworks at the Atlantis. Let’s see.
Anyway the fireworks displayed in the photographs and the video are to celebrate Dubai Shopping Festival which is ongoing at the moment. They have 3 minute fireworks on every Thursday and Friday until well into January. Although the facebook page for JBR Beach specifies the time at 9pm it actually only starts at 9.30. Hope you like the images and video.
