August is all about putting on your pride face and donning those red and white colours as August 9 marks National Day – the day Singapore gained independence from Malaysia. The best bit? It falls on a Sunday, making Monday a public holiday. To sweeten the jubilant atmosphere, the NDP2020 fireworks are being set off at over 10 different locations islandwide, so that you can enjoy the stunning display from the comfort (and safety) of your home.
That's not all – the month also welcomes another long list of exciting events. Get front-row seats to a virtual fashion show featuring local brands. Sneak peeks at Matt Reeves' upcoming The Batman, the highly-anticipated Wonder Woman 1984, and the recently confirmed Snyder Cut of Justice League at an online DC convention. Uncover the lesser-known stories and hidden histories of Singapore's migrant communities through a series of thought-provoking thoughts. To help you plan your August schedule ahead, we've rounded up our top picks of things to do this month.
