National Day is almost here on August 9th and this year, the parade will go ahead with a centralized physical event and spectators at The Float @ Marina Bay! Themed “Stronger Together, Majulah!”, and it is a call for all Singaporeans to forge ahead as a united and strong people towards a better future. “Stronger Together” reminds Singaporeans that unity in our diversity is what makes us stronger.
As we celebrate together as a nation, here are our top picks of activities this August 2022!
After a hiatus, the National Day Parade is finally back at The Float at Marina Bay Singapore! This year, we will see the return of the Total Defence Display (TDD) comprising of 2 parts, 'Defending Our Country' and 'Securing Singapore Together'. As Singapore celebrates 55 years of National Service (NS55), the parade will also pay a special tribute to all National Servicemen in recognition of their service, sacrifices and continued support by their families and employers for NS. One of the highlights of the P&C is the Military Tattoo, which will consist of a performance by the SAF Precision Drill Squad, SAF and SPF Combined Band, Combined School Bands and the Virtual Choir.
Audiences can expect to see traditional P&C favourites such as the Presidential Gun Salute and Feu-de-Joie in NDP 2022. If you did not manage to snag the tickets for the parade, bask in National Day pride in the heartlands or other events below!
