Singapore is celebrating its 50 years of independence on August 9th this year. Practices and rehearsals for the National Day Parade (NDP) have started since many weeks ago and since last week, it includes the fireworks too. If you are in Singapore, you can still enjoy the fireworks on the following dates:
– 18 July – rehearsal
– 25 July – rehearsal
– 1 August – Preview
– 9 August – NDP 2015
The fireworks will start at about 7:30pm. This is a very short one, followed by few short ones every 10 minutes after that. The complete fireworks will start at about 8:15pm. The areas around the Marina Bay are generally good spots to watch the fireworks. These include the Esplanade, One Fullerton, Jubilee Bridge, Marina Promenade and Gardens by the Bay East. The ones below were taken from the Gardens by the Bay East. It is a good place for picnic too. So, if you are family with children, this place is ideal. It will be quite packed on 9th August though. So, come early. Have fun and enjoy the fireworks.
