Millions of people all around the world are preparing to celebrate New Year’s Eve like no other – with lockdowns, restrictions and curfews in several place in dozen of countries, in order to stop the spread of COVID-19 before vaccination starts to take effect. It’s New Year’s Eve 2020 tomorrow. Just a day and a half more to go to welcome the year of 2021.

New Year’s Eve is one occasion that is marked all across the globe in zeal and great enthusiasm. The arrival of the new calendar year has made everyone excited and has achieved new hopes and goals in the days to come.

With 2020 being such an unpredictable year with the looming crisis of COVID-19 over us, people are highly looking forward to the New year 2021.

Every country marks the welcome of the New Year with a shower of fireworks display. The Sydney Harbour, New York’s Times Square, Singapore’s Marina Bay, Burj Khalifa in Dubai all of these are prime attractions of the welcoming of a New Year.

But with COVID-19 restrictions because of the new mutant strain of coronavirus, which countries are going ahead with the New Year’s Eve events? Find out here-

Sydney Harbour Fireworks

While everyone outside of Australia watches Sydney’s fireworks at home, this time even the country people will have to do the same. Unlike the grand celebrations of the New Year fireworks, this year’s display would be much scaled-down. People are not allowed to gather at the Sydney Harbour Bridge to watch the display. Earlier the government had given preference to frontline workers to watch the show from front-seat vantage points, but that too has been cancelled to avoid any crowds.

Burj Khalifa in Dubai NYE 2021 Event

The world’s tallest building will go ahead with hosting their NYE 2021 Event. Along with the fireworks there would also be water-music dance at The Dubai Fountain. There were will be extravagant pyrotechnic shows and a grand welcome to the New Year. People can also watch the display the comfort of their homes.

The Times Square Ball Drop, New York

The Times Square Ball Drop is one of the many anticipated events of New Year welcome. But this time NYC will not host the thousands of visitors that gather here every year. The event will be carried on as a digital event.

The entertainment line up includes Gloria Gaynor, Pitbull, Anitta, Jennifer Lopez, Billy Porter, Cyndi Lauper, Jimmie Allen, Machine Gun Kelly, The Waffle Crew, and USO Show Troupe.

London Fireworks

The entire UK is going through a strict lockdown following the new strain of COVID19 and surging cases. Therefore, there are no fireworks events to welcome the New Year or New Year’s Eve in London.

The annual display over river Thames was cancelled back in September.

Marina Bay Fireworks Singapore

The famous spot in Singapore will not be hosting the annual fireworks display. However, the Singapore skylines won’t be devoid of any crackers. To avoid the huge crowds turning up at Marina Bay, the fireworks will be lit up at 11 heartland locations across the country instead. People can watch these displays virtually as well. The fireworks will also be live-streamed and included in some of the 16 virtual engagements that have been organised for the New Year here.

In most cases, all events will be held in the virtual presence of attendees. It ensures safety and social distancing. We hope everyone likes the live broadcast to enjoy a safer New Year’s Eve. We welcome 2021 very safely. Happy New Year 2021 in advance.
