NDP Rehearsal Fireworks


Time Out says

You don’t have to wait for the actual NDP for stunning fireworks. Instead, ooh and aah at fireworks displays at NDP rehearsals, held every week from now until July 29. This week, the rehearsals will be happening on July 15, at around 8pm. There are several places to watch fireworks from; head to Gardens by the Bay East, Esplanade, The Promontory, or Helix Bridge for the best views. You’ll want to get there early, however – even rehearsals tend to draw large crowds. 

When can I watch the NDP fireworks?

Besides National Day itself, there are a couple of NDP rehearsals and previews to catch the National Day fireworks. 

  • NDP Rehearsals: June 10, 17, 24 (over)
  • NE Shows: July 2, 8, 15 (over)
  • NDP Previews: July 22, 29 
  • NDP 2023: August 9 

What time do the fireworks start?

Based on on previous NDPs, the fireworks and fire display usually begin at 8.15pm, followed by the main fireworks show and national anthem. 

Will there be fireworks in the heartlands?

Yes! Catch simultaneous fireworks displays at Bedok Stadium, Jurong West Stadium, Toa Payoh Stadium, Woodlands Stadium and Our Tampines Hub on August 9.
