Live Screening Venues of the National Day Parade around Singapore

The Float

National Day is just around the corner. This year, the celebrations are going to be SG50 Jubilee-tastic!

If you are among the lucky ones who successfully balloted for NDP tickets, we are envious of you. However, even if you didn’t get tickets, it doesn’t mean that you can’t head out to soak in the atmosphere on that special day. You can still get into the spirit of the celebrations as we mark 50 years since independence and the achievements of the little red dot.

Here is a guide to places where you can catch live screenings of the National Day Parade and experience the community spirit around Singapore.
