The impressive fountains shoot up to 105 metres high and are choreographed along with over 3,000 LED lights. There are two giant floating platforms that cover almost 14,000 square feet.

For the occasion of Diwali, the performance has been choreographed to dance to classic and contemporary Bollywood tunes and Hindi pop songs.

The fountain show will take place at 9pm on November 13.

Following the show, a firework display will take place which will illuminate the night sky.

The great news? The show is free but social distancing measures have been put in place.
