Aren’t you absolutely excited to watch this year’s fireworks? Singapore has seen some tough times recently. Especially with lesser gatherings and restrictions placed for our safety.

But with the relaxing of measures, perhaps National Day Parade 2022 will see a much more lively celebration this year. Plus, with carnivals and heartland fireworks on top of the usual parade? NDP 2022 is going to be a blast.  

Do note that the organised locations will be open for visitors to enter and watch the fireworks. However, since it is a non-ticketed event, seats are first-come-first-serve and standard Safe Management Measures apply.
