What to expect at National Day Parade 2-0-1-6? πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡¬πŸŽ‰

Good day Churpers! How has your Monday been? ☺️

We’re just 2 weeks away from our nation’s birthday bash! Whether you managed to get tickets to the show, we’re sure you’ll be out (or at home) celebrating with a bang!πŸ’₯

Year after year, our parade committee never fails to impress us with unique performances and new technologies – the result of brilliant minds and tremendous amount of hard work & passion! Aside from being held at the National Stadium for the first time in 10 years, what else can we expect for NDP 2016?

ARE YOU READY? Let's go! πŸ™Œ

Got our tickets βœ”οΈ

We have our very own Alpha, Nurul (@aanurul), hosting this year’s show yet again! You go girl!πŸ’ƒπŸ»

Watch the crowd go wild with our favourite KALLANG WAVE 🌊

Local band, 53A, takes the stage and performs this year’s NDP song "Tomorrow's Here Today" - which is about building a better future for Singapore πŸ’ͺ

Did you know that the music video was shot in a single take? 😱😍 #supportlocal

Now let us take you through some of the key highlights cos you know we still want to keep some element of surprise for you hehe.

The Story of Badang & The Singapore Stone 🌿

Seen this huge stone at the National Museum? Well we didn't know there's actually a story behind this...

The show starts off and revolves around the story of Badang & The Singapore Stone to bring out the strength, agility and resilience that have helped us through the challenges we faced & to celebrate our four civilizations that make us uniquely Singapore πŸ‘²πŸΌπŸ‘©πŸ½πŸ‘³πŸΎπŸ‘±πŸΌβœ¨

Unique Performance Stage 🎭

At the size of about 9 basketball courts, not only does the stage resembles our island state but it's shaped like a huge wristwatch (with the side ramps) to bring out the time-travel element throughout the show; from our past to the future πŸŒ†

First-ever 3D projection & HUGE aerial props πŸ’«πŸ’«πŸ’«

Watch the props come alive with the mapping of 3D animation - definitely adds an exciting & refreshing element to the show!

Check out the HUGE aerial props standing at approx 6 stories high 😱 This year's advanced aerial system also enables for the most number of aerial performers to be staged. Be prepared to be mesmerized! 😍

Show off those LED wristbands!

Raise your wristbands in the air like you just don’t care!

Watch the colour of your wristband change at various times during the show β€οΈπŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’›πŸ’œ

Doesn't it feel like we’re in some sort of K-pop concert? πŸ˜‚

Audiences will get to participate more actively during the parade & play an integral role as well πŸ™Œ

INDOOR fireworks πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯

And finally to end the night, we bring you everyone's favourite! Catch the spectacular display of fireworks right in front of your very eyes πŸŽ†πŸ˜

[☝️Note that there are outdoor fireworks too. So if you've got tix on the actual day, you might want to catch the outdoor display this coming Saturday as you won't get to view much of it from the inside!]

We hope you're as excited as us for Singapore's 51st birthday! If you've already watched the show,

Share with us some of YOUR favourite parade moments! ✨
