Welcome 2021 with Fireworks on Madeira

Madeira Island welcomes 2021 with celebrations muted by Covid Virus. Nonetheless Madeira greeted 2021 with breathtaking fireworks in its capital city of Funchal.

Fireworks Madeira New Year

The Covid pandemic casted a shadow over usual New Year’s celebrations.  However, the world-renowned fireworks did take place respecting full covid protocols.  This means that many restrictions limiting crowds and keeping social distancing were imposed and most of all respected. 

Viewers were to remain in square (social bubbles) drawn on the floor by local authorities. This is visible in the video below starting at 50 seconds.

The local government even asked locals to stay home and watch the festivities from the comfort of their homes.  However, some people came to Funchal to bid farewell to a year they would rather forget.
