Singapore’s National Day is held each year on the 9th of August in memory of Singapore’s freedom from Malaysia in 1965.
On this day, there is a National Parade, a speech from the Prime Minister of Singapore and a huge fireworks display.

There are also displays of Singapore’s defensive capabilities through flyovers by the military. Afterwards, a massive fireworks display is set against the stunning city skyline framed by the Marina Waterfront and singing the National Anthem.
On the second Sunday following the National Day, a speech is issued by Singapore’s Prime Minister called the National Day Rally. The rally has been a yearly occasion since 1966, and the Prime Minister utilises it to address the country’s key difficulties and future prospects. It is comparable to the ‘State of the Union Address’ conveyed by the President of the United States.
We would like to know if there is fireworks on Hari Raya Haji as I’ m planing for our Singapore trip on end of August.

I don’t believe there will be fireworks for Hari Raya Haji this year. The Night Festival may also be in its final days whilst you are visiting Singapore, so make sure to check that out too!
Hello , we would like to know at what time starts the fireworks on 9 August if someone could tell me that would be great thank you very much ! And please also where the best place to stay to see the fireworks ! Thanks and have a lovely day with greetings from Majorca Spain
The show schedule is yet to be released by the organiser. Check back with us in a week or so and hopefully more information is available.
There will be plenty of viewing spots along Marina Bay where you can view the fireworks. Some popular spots are at the Float @ Marina Bay, Merlion or on the Singapore Flyer!
When will be time of the fireworks? Thanks.
Will the fireworks be after 6 pm?
Yes. The fireworks for Singapore National Day wont start until the sun has gone down. Typically the light show starts at around 8pm.
