Moreover, there will be spectacular fireworks to mark the celebration. These will commence on Thursday, September 23, at 9pm, at Yas Bay.

Spectators will only be able to view the fireworks from selected hotels and restaurants on the island, where social-distancing measures will be in place, as public gatherings outdoors are prohibited under the island’s Covid-19 safety measures.

The fireworks will also be live streamed on Yas Island’s Instagram page, @yasisland.
