Government Approves Specific Fireworks Displays to Ring in New Year

It is important to note that permission given for specific displays of fireworks is in no way an approval for parties and other gatherings.

UPDATE: ALL PERMISSION FOR FIREWORKS DISPLAYS TONIGHT RESCINDED

Further to a press release (see below) issued on December 30, the Government of Grenada now advises that permission granted to designated facilities for fireworks displays on Old Year’s night, has been rescinded.

Therefore, there will be no fireworks displays at any location in the country.

All individuals or business entities are therefore asked to be guided accordingly.

Government apologises for any confusion created by the previous release but it encourages the cooperation of everyone.

Failure to comply could result in legal consequences for breaching the current regulations.

The Government of Grenada takes this opportunity to wish everyone a safe, healthy and productive 2021.

St. George’s: December 30, 2020: In a bid to ring in the New Year by celebrating citizens, especially frontline workers, the Government of Grenada has granted permission to the Royal Grenada Police Force and to several designated hotel facilities to launch displays of fireworks, as is customary on New Year’s Eve.

Government believes that ringing in 2021 with fireworks is a most fitting way to pay homage to the people of Grenada, who, like populations around the world, have had a very difficult 2020–none more so than the healthcare, security and other workers at the frontline of the COVID-19 pandemic.

It is important to note that permission given for specific displays of fireworks is in no way an approval for parties and other gatherings.

The emergency rules for social gatherings, quarantining, and other restrictions are firmly in effect, so too is the curfew which begins at 8:00 p.m., and ends at 5:00 a.m. During those hours, everyone must remain confined to his or her yard space.

The showcasing of fireworks is granted to specific facilities and areas, and the managers responsible have already been given an outline by health officials of what is permissible. During the midnight displays, visitors as well as locals must already be confined to their accommodation or yard space.

The Government, and in particular the Ministry of Health, wishes everyone a happy and safe New Year.
