Instead of fireworks, ring in the new year with two light shows at Marina Bay this year. The first light display, Shine A Light, will see 60 light beams illuminating the Marina Bay skyline from The Promontory. Presented from 8pm to 10.30pm nightly from December 1 to 28, the display will glow with different colours to spotlight a different cause. From December 29 to 31, it will light up in magenta to represent the harmonious spirit of Singapore.
The second display, Share the Moment, will showcase student artworks from various schools projected on the facades of three landmarks in Marina Bay – The Fullerton Hotel Singapore, ArtScience Museum and the Merlion. The artworks are centred around the theme of heartwarming moments inspired by the President's Volunteerism & Philanthropy Awards 2021. This special display will be presented every 15 minutes from 8pm to 10.30pm starting December 26 to 31.
To up the ante even further, there will also be light installations and projections at the Marina Bay waterfront promenade. This includes a spectacular display of colours on a treetop canopy, a galaxy and an abstract clockface projection display.
