This August 9, 2002, Singapore will celebrate its 57th birthday- a commemoration of independence.
A traditional National Day Parade (NDP) will be held at The Float @ Marina Bay on August 9. Before the parade, there will be other entertainment that will encourage people to gather early. These activities include sky-diving, choir presentations, band performances, and more. Food and drinks will also be available in the area for everyone to enjoy. At night, there will be fireworks displays from different locations.
In addition to the August 9 celebration, Singapore’s heartlands or areas outside the city center will also have National Day festivities on August 6 and 7. There will be musical performances, family activities, and asset displays from the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) and the Home Team.
