This New Year’s Eve, Ras Al Khaimah is the place to be as the Emirate readies to host the most spectacular celebration with a 12-minute firework display and a host of family-oriented activities at Al Marjan Island. With three additional viewing areas at Al Marjan Island and Al Hamra Village, the New Year’s Eve in Ras Al Khaimah has so much fun and thrills in store for visitors, especially families.
The fireworks display, yet another bid for a Guinness World Record, can be enjoyed this year from three venues that will transform into a family zone with exciting activities for all members. Among the diverse activities at the venues are food trucks, ice cream salons, lemonade corners, colourful band performances, and children’s activities such as face painting and inflatable games. Stilt walkers, mime artists, and clowns will welcome guests with free balloons to be distributed.
Abdulla Al Abdouli, Managing Director & CEO of Marjan, said: “We made sure that this year we offer exciting family activities that will delight all, in the run-up to the amazing fireworks display. The event will position the Emirate as the must-visit destination this season. We have formed a special committee to oversee all aspects of the event to make it the most memorable to date.”
Assuring easy access, the three venues to watch the fireworks are next to Al Hamra Village – Al Shohadah Street, Al Marjan Island and Al Wasl Street between Al Marjan Island and Al Hamra Village all with special parking areas. These venues are open for free to the public and are family-friendly with the festivities going on from 5pm on December 31 to 2am on January 1.
With more than 27,000 parking spaces allotted, guests can conveniently access their venue of choice through non-stop feeder buses. There will also be extra buses from Al Hamra, Mina Al Arab and the Ras Al Khaimah city to the venues. To manage the traffic and make access seamless, infographics on designated traffic routes to the parking spaces will be announced on social media channels closer to the event date.
