The Pointe in Dubai is gearing up to launch the world's largest fountain.
'The Palm Fountain', Palm Jumeirah's latest waterfront attraction, will attempt to break a Guinness World Records title on Thursday, October 22, during its inaugural launch event, and the public is invited to witness the celebration.
Spread over 14,000 sq ft of seawater, the fountain's super shooter will stand tall at 105m and come alive with over 3,000 LED lights. It is the only multicoloured fountain in Dubai.
The fountain will have 20 bespoke shows with five different shows running daily between 7pm and midnight. Each show will last for three minutes and will be performed every 30 minutes.
On the day of the launch, visitors of The Pointe are invited to enjoy an entire day of festivities, with all-day events and competitions from The Pointe's restaurants and, starting at 4pm, an array of live entertainment including multiple DJ sets, dance shows, performers, a magical fireworks show.
The day-long event is open to the public through registration, and the first 5,000 customers who arrive will receive a free LED wristband.
Omar Khoory, Managing Director, Nakheel Malls, said: "As pioneers of retail and lifestyle destinations in Dubai, the launch of The Palm Fountain is a testament to our commitment to support retailers and push boundaries to provide our customers with unique experiences. We look forward to the inspiration this will bring customers at The Pointe, residents of Palm Jumeirah, our retailers, tourists and the wider community."
Ahmed Al Khaja, CEO of Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment, DFRE, said, "The Palm Fountain is yet another incredible addition to Dubai's list of world-famous landmarks and is sure to be a big draw among residents and visitors alike."
The public is encouraged to RSVP for the launch event and join in The Palm Fountain's Guinness World Records attempt via platinumlist.net. Free shuttle buses will be available to take visitors from Nakheel Mall to The Pointe every 30 minutes.
