What's OnPost Category - What's OnWhat's On

Here’s how you can catch some of the highly anticipated National Day Parade action early!

Singapore National Day on 9 August is when we will celebrate Singapore’s 53rd birthday. If you didn’t manage to get tickets in the ballot or if you’re just excited like us and can’t wait for the action, you can watch the fun early at an upcoming National Day rehearsal! The National Day Parade (NDP) 2018 as well as the rehearsals will take place at The Float @ Marina Bay and you can expect full dress rehearsals and aerial displays on these dates:

National Day Parade Rehearsals:

  • 14 July 2018
  • 21 July 2018
  • 28 July 2018
  • 4 August 2018

National Day 2018 Schedule

The theme: “We Are Singapore” will celebrate our people, our nation and our home Singapore with over 2,600 participants from different walks of life.

Pre-parade: See the Red Lions, and the Naval Combat Divers who will for the first time conduct a freefall water jump into Marina Bay to demonstrate their operational prowess.

Parade & Ceremony: There will be 33 marching contingents, plus – back after a five year hiatus – the Combined Schools Choir, and the largest combined Military Tattoo performance for an NDP held at the Float.

Other faves to keep an eye out for include the 21-Gun Presidential Gun Salute on the M3G military raft, the Feu De Joie, as well as the State Flag flypast flown by an RSAF Chinook helicopter escorted by two AH-64D Apache helicopters.

RSAF will also dazzle by flying in formation in an aerial flypast towards The Float @ Marina Bay. There will also be exciting aerial maneuvers by fighter aircraft as they soar in the skies above the Marina Bay area.

Show: Set up at the Floating Platform, the film of real-life stories of five individuals, will be displayed on swivel panels that can be combined to form a single 50m-wide screen, or multiple smaller screens. There will even be a water procession of 18 vessels comprising lit-up boats and floats that will sail around the bay!

Fireworks finale: ‘We Are Singapore ‘ will comprise 500 performers with ethnic drums, along with a chance to take our pledge and sing the National Anthem. And then, of course, the stunning display of fireworks!

Tip 1. Always accessorise - be it a statement pair of sunnies, a bold lip, a beautiful bag or eye catching jewellery these are quick fixes for maximum impact with minimum effort. At Ms.Yin | Ms.Yang we're never knowingly understated!
