The park will have free, family-friendly festivities from 5pm to 10pm, topped off with an eye-catching projection on the Burj Khalifa and a countdown moment at 20:20 that will mark the precise time the next World Expo will be launched on October 20, 2020.
Carey and Al Jassmi will headline the celebrations at Burj Park, Downtown Dubai, where 7,500 visitors will also witness a special appearance by leading Bollywood actress, Shraddha Kapoor.
Simultaneous festivities will also take place across the six other emirates at Louvre Abu Dhabi, Al Majaz Waterfront in Sharjah, Ajman Museum, Umm Al Qaiwain Corniche, Al Qawasim Corniche in Ras Al Khaimah and the Fujairah Fort.
