The emirate of Ras Al Khaimah gears up to mark the New Year 2020 with two dazzling firework shows, attempting to enter the Guinness World Records.

Planned to surpass all the record-breaking firework galas hosted by Ras Al Khaimah in the past years, #RAKNYE2020 promises to be a mind-boggling feat, where pyrotechnics, fireworks and laser displays will create a dazzling experience.

A spokesperson for the organizing committee said the New Year's Eve celebration, for the first time, will feature pyro-drones that will create never-before-seen fireworks starting with the countdown to the beginning of the New Year and culminating with Ras Al Khaimah's main landmarks being recreated in the sky accompanied by more fireworks.

"There will also be a special Japanese aerial shell fireworks display, another innovative experience. The two new experiences this year attempt to clinch two Guinness World Records."

#RAKNYE2020 will be even more special this year with a range of celebrities - including top performers from the Arab world - set to put forth an awe-inspiring music performance, he added.

"Details of the event and tickets sales will be revealed in October. Families will be delighted with an added array of activities for young ones at three new locations dedicated to the public and families along the sea coast opposite Al Marjan Island."

The picturesque fireworks display can be viewed from several vantage positions, from Al Marjan Island, along the coast to Al Hamra, he pointed out.

"Get ready for another record-smashing fireworks spectacle that is indeed the 'Hall of Fame' of New Year's Eve celebrations - with visitors set to arrive from across the world," he disclosed. "More details of the gala event and the attempts for the new Guinness World Record will be announced in due course."

The primary focus is to engage and entertain families, he underlined. "We are adding several features to delight them, in addition to hosting a celebrity gala featuring top celebrities. With the celebration, we are further underlining the reputation of Ras Al Khaimah as the go-to destination for New Year's Eve celebrations."

The 2019 Ras Al Khaimah New Year's Eve celebration had not only welcomed hundreds of thousands of visitors from around the world but also set two Guinness World Records - for the 'Longest chain of fireworks' and for the 'Longest straight line of fireworks' while the 2018 celebration set a new world record for the 'Largest aerial firework shell'.
