The fireworks are estimated to go off at 8 - 8.20pm, but we would recommend you to go to your chosen location early to beat the crowd and snag a good spot! 

For those who drive, don't forget to check out the Traffic Advisory here on the office NDP website for more information on road closures.


In commemoration of the country's bicentennial mark, there will also be fireworks being set off at the Singapore River for the very first time in history. The fireworks will begin at 8pm on 9 August and will last for about 5 minutes.

If you want to stay at home to watch the National Day Parade in comfort, you can still catch a 4-minute fireworks display at selected heartland areas the following day (10 August)!
