Red-Lions Free Fall 

In 2020, we saw the Red-Lions free fall in Jurong and Sengkang for the first time. With that experience, we believe we will see the Red-Lions perform the popular segment across more locations for NDP2021 and excite more Singaporeans nearer to their homes! 

The Red Lions will be doing test jumps around different sites till 29th July. So far, they have been spotted at Ghim Moh and Bishan. 

Stay tune as we will share the exact locations once we hear about them! 

NDP Fireworks In The Heartlands

Similar as previous years, NDP2021 will feature fireworks in the heartlands as the celebration is Livestreamed. With the fireworks across Singapore, more Singaporeans can view the fireworks "Live" from the comfort of their own homes and still be part of the celebrations!
