Port to sponsor New Year’s fireworks, seeks partners | THE DAILY HERALD


PORT–Port St. Maarten will sponsor the 2018-2019 New Year’s fireworks display in Great Bay. Port Management seeks partners to help ring in the New Year.

  This year’s fireworks display in Great Bay will be the 13th edition since Port St. Maarten started putting on the country’s largest display for the public to ring in the New Year. The display will last 10 minutes.

  The Port was unable to sponsor the fireworks show in 2017 due to the challenges caused by Hurricanes Irma and Maria.


  “We are very confident in the future and we would like to give back to the community and the children by restoring some of the things that we are accustomed to,” said Port management in a press statement on Wednesday.

  “We recognize that the country is still going through hardships, but we should also take a moment to acknowledge a near-recovered cruise tourism product and jumpstart 2019 of 55 years of cruise St. Maarten. Cruise tourism has seen a remarkable recovery since December 2017 when the first cruise ships returned to the destination.

  “Let us celebrate after all the hard work by various stakeholders in the recovery of the destination,” the Port said.

  Companies interested in partnering with the Port should e-mail
