Kicking off the Golden Jubilee week, Singapore will be celebrating its 50th Birthday on this coming Sunday, 9th August 2015. Last week, a courtesy to People’s Association for the warm invitation to catch the National Day Parade (NDP) 2015 Preview at Pixel PAdang @ The Float at Marina Bay.
Although it is not at the Padang but celebrations at the float was still an amazing and exciting NDP 2015 preview. The enthusiastic atmosphere from the crowds will definitely give you the best national day celebration this year. Today, I am going to share my opinions on why NDP 2015 is a MUST celebrate in Marina Bay Singapore.
Stunning Aerial Display
First thing caught my eyes at the NDP 2015 Preview was the stunning aerial performance by Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF). And the coolest moment is when 20 F-16s form a number “50” formation flying across marina bay to commemorate Singapore 50th Birthday. Do look out for Black Knights in “Arrowhead” and “Criss Cross” in aerial display.
Sing Along NDP Theme Song
Oh… Oh … Oh… ~ our home, our heart, our Singapore… From my experience, it is difficult to find people who are not singing at the National Day Parade especially when it comes to catchy song such as “Stand Up”, “Home”, “We Are Singapore” and etc… Yes! So let’s join in the sing along session at Singapore golden jubilee celebration this year.
Enjoy the Golden Jubilee Sunset
As Singapore is celebrating the golden jubilee year, do remember to watch out for golden sunset at Marina Bay. I hope the golden sunset will appear this Sunday evening. Cheers!
Marvelous Mobile Column Display
Mobile Column display is one of the biggest highlight segments at National Day Parade 2015. It is the combine display by Singapore Armed Forces (SAF), Singapore Police Force (SPF) and Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) to showcase our strength, resilience and vigilance of our defence pillars.

Tribute to the late founding Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew
To dedicate to the life and accomplishments of the late founding father of Singapore, Mr Lee’s seat at National Day Parade this year will be left empty, with a bouquet of flowers placed on it.
From 1965 to 2015, from the past to the present, NDP this year featured the vintage parade which involved 450 remarkable pioneers who marched in earlier parades from the 1960s to 1970s. This will be one of an eye-opening parade ceremony for the young audiences as well as the senior to remembering Singapore.
