Your New Year’s Eve celebrations had nothing on this. In Dubai, organizers successfully pulled off a fireworks display so epic that it set a new world record: an estimated 500,000 pyrotechnics were set off from 400 different locations along 60 miles of coastline at midnight.
The blazing event was attended by thousands of people as well as being live-streamed on YouTube and Dubai Media’s website. Viewers enjoyed a six-minute display that lit up various Dubai landmarks — including the Palm Jumeirah, a man-made island in the shape of a palm tree, and The World, an archipelago of islands designed to create the shape of a global map.
