The Singapore National Day Parade is a national ceremony that is usually held at The Float @ Marina Bay, the National Stadium at the Singapore Sports Hub, or the Padang.
It was first held at The Float @ Marina Bay in 2007, and it was first held at the Singapore Sports Hub in 2016. This parade includes shows and dances, most of the time dictating Singapore’s daily life.
The theme “Our Singapore” commemorates our Singapore bicentennial and allows us to tell Our Singapore story from past to present. “Our” emphasises the collective ownership of Singapore. We are living the dreams of our pioneers, and we are now the pioneers of our future.
OUR SINGAPORE (2019)
Drawing on familiar lyrics from songs in the NDP repertoire such as ‘We Will Get There’ and ‘Our Singapore’, this year’s theme song features Singaporean musicians across four different generations. The song comprises carefully curated verses sung by 27 artistes representing different generations to express their generation’s hopes, dreams and aspirations.
The theme song pays homage to the contributions and sacrifices of earlier generations as we are today living the dreams of our pioneers. We are now pioneers of our future, as we continue to build Singapore for tomorrow.
