Even if you have no tickets to the parade, there’s absolutely no reason to miss out on our nation’s bicentennial celebrations this National Day weekend. With the NDP buzz being extended into the heartlands, residents will be treated to a parade of military tanks, artillery systems and more in Bishan, Woodlands, Punggol, Wisma Geylang Serai and Jurong East. What’s more, this parade will culminate in a dazzling 4-minute fireworks display!
With official gathering points having been marked, read on to know exactly where to go to ignite your National Day spirit at these 5 heartland locations on 10 August.
North / North-South
Beat the crowds by arriving earlier to your nearest designated gathering point! This will ensure that you and your loved ones always get the best views, wherever you decide to go. Gather at Jubilee Square (3PM), Yishun MRT (5:15PM) and Sembawang MRT (5:25PM) stations to admire the Bishan mobile column as they trundle past.
Gather at North Bridge Garden (3:40PM) and Blk 513 Hougang Avenue 10 (4:15PM) to bask in the full glory of the spectacular extravaganza as it unfolds.
Wisma Geylang Serai
Easties, you’re in for a treat! You have three gathering points to catch your section of the roving mobile column at Bedok Town Square (3:40PM) and Our Tampines Hub (4:10PM), before it loops back to Wisma Geylang Serai (6:45PM).
Westies, you’ve definitely not been forgotten! Rock up at Clementi Mall (3:25PM) and Blk 298 Bukit Batok Street 22 (6PM) to admire your section of the roving mobile column! Once it has passed these two gathering points, it will head towards Jurong East to wrap up all of the heartland festivities.
Once you have caught a glimpse of the awesome roving mobile column parade, don’t go yet! Remember to stay back for the fireworks display that will commence shortly after. Soak in the sights and sounds as we end our nation’s long birthday weekend with a spectacular bang!
