Singapore celebrates its 47th birthday on August 9, 2012 at the Float at Marina Bay. With the theme 'Loving Singapore, Our Home', this year's festivities are set to astound once with a parade display by servicemen, uniformed and civilian groups. The accompanying show segment is also one to look out for with multimedia projections and mass performance displays.
This year's National Day Parade is hosted by Gurmit Singh, Jean Danker, Joakim Gomez, Sharon Au and Suhaimi Yusof. Annual crowd-pleasers include the presidential 21-gun salute and the 'Salute to the Nation' move executed by eight Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) fighter aircraft. Here are 12 elements, new and old, to look forward to come August 9.
Catch the National Day Parade live on Channel 5 on August 9 beginning from 5.20pm. Log on to xinmsn.com/ndp2012 for catch-up videos of NDP 2012 and other NDP-related programmes.
