The Urban Development Corporation UDC has announced that there will be no staging of its signature New Year’s Eve events, Fireworks on the Waterfront and Fireworks on the Bay.

The annual Fireworks on the Waterfront and Fireworks on the Bay hosted respectively by the UDC and its subsidiary, St. Ann Development Company SADCo, have become a tradition for many families across Jamaica to usher in the New Year.

Over the years, in excess of 300,000 have gathered along the Kingston Waterfront and Ocho Rios Bay Beach, to witness the island’s most stellar fireworks displays.

UDC in a statement said it is cognizant of the physical distancing and public gathering guidelines in place for public safety and says it supports the Government of Jamaica’s efforts to curb the spread of COVID-19.
