With the New Year just around the corner – Guam will be ringing it in with a fireworks and drone show. But will the weather leading up to New Years Eve put a damper on those plans?
As PNC’s Althea Engman previously reported, the weather might put a damper on the News Year’s festivities happening at Ypao and Hagatna on the 31st.
PNC sat down with GVB Public Information Officer, Josh Tyquiengco, regarding the weather for the scheduled fireworks and drone shows.
“Everything so far, checking in with our vendors and the National Weather Service indicate that we’re going to have a great show for the residents and also for our visitors that are coming in to celebrate the holidays,” says Tyquiengco.
Tquiengco adds that people should bring one essential item for the unpredictable weather, saying, “Well, I think we should anticipate that we live in an island and rain happens all the time and just to bring an umbrella just in case.”
According to Tyquiengco, the three fireworks shows by JamzMedia will launch for the island – which will be two in Tumon and one in Hagatna. The drone show by Bella Wings Aviation will exclusively be at Ypao Beach Park will have a Christmas and New Year theme.
The GVB PIO added that, “for everyone on the west side of Tumon Bay–anywhere from Hilton to PIC and those who want to come down to Ypao Beach Park, there will be a show here for them. And then on the East side of Tumon Bay, right around Dusit, Hyatt area. There will be another show that will be synchronized with the show that’s on Tumon Bay.”
“Also for those that don’t make it down into Tumon, there will be a show in Hagatna, that show will be launching from the Hagatna Boat Basin and the treatment plant crossway area,” Tyquiengco continued.
The Guam Visitors Bureau is inviting the community and visitors to ring in the new year at Tumon Bay or Hagatna Bay to see the fireworks and drone show.
The drone show will start at 11:50 pm at the Ypao Beach Park and the fireworks shows will launch at midnight.
