Starting from 26th December, visitors to Marina Bay will get to view colourful and dazzling projections on the façades of key landmarks in the precinct.
These projections are adapted from artworks created by students and beneficiaries of local schools and welfare organisations, as part of the Build A Dream initiative, presented by the Marina Bay Singapore Countdown 2019 in partnership with the National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre (NVPC).
Besides light projection shows, the public can join in various activities around Marina Bay and Civic District on New Year’s Eve. Below is a list of the events presented by Marina Bay Singapore Countdown 2019 for your reference:
Join in the Party at Marina Bay on New Year’s Eve
Come 31st December, visitors can experience the fun and excitement at the Marina Bay and Civic District, where an array of activities and programmes has been lined up from early evening through the night, culminating in a spectacular seven-minute fireworks display set against Singapore’s iconic city skyline that can be viewed from around the bay at midnight.
Live performances can also be enjoyed at Mediacorp’s Let’s Celebrate 2019 countdown concert at The Promontory and performances at Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay’s series of free programmes, Esplanade Presents Come Together; try out modern local gastronomical delights at the Food Truck Fest at the Marina Bay Sands Event Plaza; or indulge in thrilling rides and exciting games at the Prudential Marina Bay Carnival at the Bayfront Event Space.
Over at The Float @ Marina Bay, the STAR ISLAND Singapore Countdown Edition, a multi-sensory fireworks musical by Avex Asia, will wow the audience with an hour of performance acts by Taiko drummers, dancers, fire performers and more. The action-packed stage will be synchronised to a combination of dazzling fireworks, pyrotechnics, lights and 3D surround sound.
Ringing in the New Year at Car-Free Civic District
Car-Free New Year’s Eve (NYE) will transform the Civic District area into a bustling activity hub with a myriad of programmes for the public to enjoy. From 4pm on 31st December, St. Andrew’s Road, part of Fullerton Road, the stretch of Connaught Drive between Esplanade Park and The Padang will be closed to traffic, enabling the public to enjoy the activities in car-free comfort.
The Incubator at Esplanade Park will feature LOOP, a pop-up lifestyle festival featuring a local craft bazaar selling products by local craft makers and wellness experiences that promote awareness about sustainability. A key highlight is the Void Deck Olympics on the ground level, where visitors can relive their childhood days by taking part in capteh, congkak and Five Stones challenges.
The upper storey of LOOP will also feature a pop-up bar offering specially curated local craft beers and wine collection. Visitors can inscribe their wishes for the environment on local discarded wood pieces, which will be assembled to form a Community Tree to be displayed at Esplanade Park.
