DUBAI, UAE (CNN) -- Dubai rang in 2014 with a record-setting spectacular fireworks display.

Organizers lit up the United Arab Emirates shoreline with 400,000 pyrotechnics over a six-minute period.

According to Guinness World Records, Dubai now holds the record for the largest fireworks display.

Kuwait held the old record -- with 77,000 fireworks in one hour's time.
