9th of August is Singapore’s National Day, a yearly commemoration of Singapore’s independence from Malaysia in 1965. On that day each year, National Day Parade (NDP), a national celebration parade, is usually held at National Stadium, the Padang or Marina Bay. On 2012, the 47th National Day Parade was held at the Marina Bay Floating Platform. One of the main highlights of the NDP is the fireworks celebrations launched at the end of the parade.
Crowds gather around the Marina Bay area to witness the fireworks celebrations. Some are anxiously and impatiently waiting for the fireworks to show up.
