The mega firework display will take place on New Year’s Eve at Sheikh Zayed Festival, which runs until 1 April 2022.

The festival, known for its recreational, educational and cultural events including pavilions, exhibitions and traditional zones, showcases the UAE’s civilization, culture and heritage.

Aside from the mega firework display, a gigantic drone show is set to hover in the skies of Al Wathba.

Under the theme “WELCOME 2022”, the drone show will use an astounding 2022 drones in what has been described as “the first show of its kind and magnitude in the world”.

And if that’s not enough, the New Year’s Eve celebrations will also include a musical concert for the “Voice of the United Arab Emirates”, Aida Al Menhali, who will sing several of his most popular songs. Iraqi singer Ali Saber will also join the concert to perform some of his best songs.
