No fireworks at Burj Khalifa this New Year's Eve
Emaar has organised a unique light show to ring in the New Year.
There will be no fireworks at Burj Khalifa on December 31, officials announced on Wednesday.
The fireworks, which attract visitors from all across the world, will be replaced with a special light show.
Dubai-based master developer Emaar, which owns and operates the Burj Khalifa and The Dubai Mall, has organised a unique light show to ring in the New Year.
"This #MyDubaiNewYear is nothing like you've seen before! Get ready for a groundbreaking show as we #LightUp2018 in Downtown Dubai," Emaar said in a video posted on Facebook.
The video shows the words "1.1.2018" glow in neon-blue lights.
Another video, posted with the caption "Say goodbye to the old & hello to the new as we #LightUp2018 in Downtown Dubai this #MyDubaiNewYear," shows the words "Downtown Dubai" and "join us" lighting up in the same neon-blue colours.
