The Burj Khalifa in Dubai is the tallest building in the world, and it also puts on one of the biggest firework displays for New Year's Eve.

This year they broke a world record for "largest LED-illuminated facade" with 70,000 LED panels wrapped around the tower, according to The Arabian Gazette.

On New Year's Eve last year, the city broke the record for biggest pyrotechnics display in the world with around 500,000 fireworks.

For another look at the display, you can check out Downton Dubai's YouTube page where you can watch from various camera angles, including drone, helicopter and fountain views.

From our friends at Uproxx:

Some background about the pic: in Ecuador, they celebrate the New Year by burning wood/carton dolls. Normally they pick politicians, or recent cartoon dolls… honestly I don't know why these particular guys picked to design characters from a 1996 movie.
