Happy 52nd Birthday Singapore!
This year in 2017, we celebrate Singapore’s 52nd year of independence with a wide array of fun-filled activities to enjoy with our families. From the annual National Day Parade to spending quality time with your loved ones, here is what you can expect from National Day 2017..
Civic District Outdoor Festival
The National Gallery Singapore is holding this festival right in the Singapore’s CBD. From dazzling performances by local musicians to a late night picnic with huge lit bunnies, this festival brings over 40 programmes for you to check out this National Day weekend (4-5 and 11-12 August 2017).

Very hipster, must go!
Celebrating NS50 Picnic
2017 also marks 50 years of National Service in Singapore, making men out of boys since 1967. Mark your calendars for 5 August 2017 and bring your kids down to the Singapore Discovery Centre and Army Museum for a fun filled weekend, planned by Families for Life. Activities are free but registration is required.

Kudos to all Singaporean men!
So Singapore @ Sentosa
Take some time off all the hustling and bustling, and celebrate this National Day off the coasts of Singapore at Sentosa! Appreciate local history with the Heritage Carnival 2017, enjoy free movie screenings from 4 – 13 August 2017, and Merlion light shows from 4 – 27 August 2017! There’s no better way to kick back and enjoy the tropical weather at the beach.

NDP 2017 #OneNationTogether
The National Day Parade is one to watch, be it at home on tv, or on the floating platform. If you were unable to get tickets to NDP 2017, fret not! Here’s a little tip from us – click here. For those lucky enough to get tickets to the parade, find out more about the show here. Be sure to note the road closures during this period!
Traffic jams are so Singaporean
If you are travelling to the parade or heading home from work around that area, take the public transport instead! For drivers or those intending to take a cab, expect Beach Road and Rochor Road to be heavily congested. Opt for Victoria St/Hill St instead for smoother traffic and if you do get stuck in a jam, look out for our billboards at Hotel Boss, Furama City Centre and People’s Park Complex!
With so many upcoming free activities, there’s no reason not to spend time with your loved ones and celebrate National Day 2017!
