Singapore National Day Parade rehearsal dates and SG53 theme song

If you didn't snag tix for the SG53 celebrations this year, fear not. There's plenty of chances to catch all the fun at one of the National Day rehearsals!

National Day 2018 in Singapore, SG53 is edging closer (the earth shattering noise of the jet fighters buzzing over town were probably a hint…) and if you haven’t bagged tickets for the most colourful day of the year, you’ll want to catch the celebrations at a practice run! There are plenty of rehearsals happening, so head into town on one of the following dates to watch the planes and helicopters and catch the fireworks! Hot tip: Head out for a family-friendly dinner around One Fullerton, Marina Bay Sands or even Boat Quay to see the sky light up around 8.10pm on rehearsal days.

National Day rehearsal dates
Head into town to watch the skies from about 6pm on the following dates:

14 July 2018 (rehearsal)

This year’s theme song
It’s not National Day without the yearly theme song (last year’s got very mixed reviews at HoneyKids and Honeycombers HQ) so before you head down to a rehearsal, play this on a loop to really get the SG53 feels… We’re infinitely glad to see It’s a new take on the 1987 ‘We Are Singapore’!
