BACK WITH A BANG, UDC Fireworks event returns

Kingston, Jamaica | December 15, 20222: The Urban Development Corporation (UDC) is pleased to announce the return of its signature New Year’s Eve events; Fireworks on the Waterfront, Kingston and Fireworks on the Bay, in Ocho Rios. The Corporation further introduces a New Year’s event at its flagship attraction in western Jamaica – Harmony Beach Park, Montego Bay.

The annual Fireworks on the Waterfront and Fireworks On The Bay hosted by UDC and its subsidiary, St. Ann Development Company (SADCo), respectively, have become a staple for many families across Jamaica as a tradition to usher in the New Year. Over the years, thousands of Jamaicans have gathered along the Kingston Waterfront and at Ocho Rios Bay Beach to witness the island’s most stellar fireworks displays. It has been the Corporation’s gift to the nation and its way of celebrating continued national development; with the kind support of the private and public sectors.

After a two-year hiatus, these events return to the people of Jamaica with an added venue – Harmony Beach Park. The theme for these events is ‘A Diamond Jubilee Celebration’ in commemoration of Jamaica’s 60th anniversary of Independence.

As is customary, Fireworks are primarily free, public events, however, guests at the Kingston and St. Ann locations have the option to view the shows from VIP areas. Tickets for Fireworks VIP can be purchased at the UDC Head Office, 12 Ocean Boulevard, Kingston or at the SADCo Main Office, Ocean Village Shopping Centre, Ocho Rios.

The Corporation takes this opportunity to thank the Jamaican public, sponsors and other stakeholders who have consistently supported the events and looks forward to the return of Fireworks.
