The NDP 2015 Parade and Ceremony (P&C) will feature a total of 37 contingents on parade at the Padang, comprising four Guard of Honour contingents, the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) Colours Party, the Combined Band, five military and civil defence contingents, 10 uniformed group contingents, and 16 social and economic contingents.

As part of the Integrated Show at this year’s NDP, audience can look forward to the Vintage Parade which will re-enact images of Singapore in her early days of independence, with participants including pioneers who marched in the earlier parades from the 1960s to 1970s!

Featuring about 450 participants in nine contingents representing different sectors that contributed to the early growth of the nation, the Vintage Parade will showcase iconic outfits and props from past street parades. This includes the uniforms of the first generation Singapore Armed Forces, the Singapore Police Force in their khaki shorts, and the colourful streamer float from the People’s Association.

NDP 2015 will commemorate our nation’s achievements in the past 50 years, and call on all Singaporeans to look towards our bright future together as one united people.

To celebrate our nation’s 50th birthday, this year’s Aerial Display segment will feature 50 aircraft – the largest number to participate in the NDP at the Padang –with the execution of unprecedented aerial manoeuvers. Singaporeans can anticipate a spectacular Aerial Display, proudly put up by the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF), showcasing elements of precision flying and aerial finesse.

Be prepared to be dazzled by the greatest airshow in town!

This year, the Fireworks Display concept will be on an unprecedented scale as Singapore celebrates her Golden Jubilee. It will revolve around the NDP 2015 theme of “Majulah Singapura”.

The NDP 2015 Fireworks Display is to complement the NDP 2015 Integrated Show at the Padang for a grand spectacle with pyrotechnics at the Padang and roof-top of 7 surrounding commercial buildings, together with level high fireworks from the main barge at the Marina Basin. In addition to the main barge at the Marina Basin, a second barge located in Marina Bay between Gardens by the Bay and Singapore Flyer will enhance the experience for spectators at the second NDP 2015 ticketed site at The Float and for Singaporeans gathered at the Celebration sites in the city.

The key highlights of NDP 2015 Fireworks Display will include special designed fireworks displays and set-piece effects to signify our nation’s 50th year of independence. And as part of the Golden Jubilee weekend celebrations by the bay, fireworks will light-up the Marina Basin on 7 and 8 Aug 15.
