WHAT: NEW WORLD RECORD FOR THE LARGEST AERIAL FIREWORK SHELL LAUNCHED
WHERE: AL MARJAN ISLAND IN RAS AL KHAIMAH
WHEN: NEW YEARS EVE 2018
2018 got off to a great start in the UAE with them successfully managing to launch the biggest recorded aerial firework shell.
The record was previously held by Kounosu Firework Festival in Japan on 11th October 2014 which weighed an impressive 1024 kilos.
The new record saw a shell weighing in at a massive 1089 kilos with a diameter of 1500 centimetres (that is just under 5 feet in old money!) burst in the skies over Al Marjan Island. It was absolutely SPECTACULAR and began with a ground break from which the shell was launched giving the effect of a beautiful emerging flower. The huge shell burst into a huge gold with silver tipped brocade changing from yellow to red as the stars floated majestically to earth.
The display was brought together to celebrate the beauty of the man-made island archipelago and was choreographed to music from around the world to encourage further tourism to the region.
The preceding display was under the watchful eye of Fireworks by Grucci, one of the original Italian Firework families who has been in the business for six generations and continues to delight all who see their magical displays. Most famously, they have been responsible for the Presidential inauguration fireworks for the last 8 presidents.
VERY WELL DONE TO THE UAE AND OF COURSE THE INDOMITABLE FIREWORKS BY GRUCCI
