To commemorate our country’s 57th birthday and after two years of quieter and postponed celebrations due to the pandemic, this year’s National Day Parade is set to be back with a bang.
Themed “Stronger Together, Majulah!”, the celebrations will be held at the Marina Bay floating platform, with the return of many iconic moments, from the flag fly-by to the Red Lions to the spectacular NDP fireworks.
If you’re planning to join the festivities, but haven’t managed to get tickets, there are loads of prime spots to catch the fireworks for free. But this also means jostling with the crowds, and when you’re travelling with kids in tow, you may want someplace more comfortable. A restaurant that affords views of the fireworks is the next best thing. Here are some locations to hit up, including family-friendly ones.
