Pre-Parade — Together, As One United People




Kickstart the party with a BANG! Say hello to our massive national mascots – August the Merlion (NDP’s official mascot), Sharity (Community Chest mascot), Singa the Lion (our national kindness mascot), Becky Bunny (Families for Life mascot), Nila (Sports Singapore mascot), and Captain Green (NEA mascot).

Chapter 1 — United We Stand: Parade and Ceremony


Gather your family, friends and neighbours for the ultimate kampong spirit as you enjoy the Choir Music Video featuring 134 student performers, some from special education schools. Then, catch the Military Tattoo-Combined Band as they present 'Diversity in Strength', a composition highlighting diversity and unity in Singapore.

Look closely and you can catch the behind-the-scenes camaraderie in true Singaporean spirit. Watch as dedicated teams manoeuvre colourful props, arrange elegant formations, and dazzle you with pyrotechnics and a multimedia time lapse of Singapore's transformation.



Chapter 4 — We Embrace Our Diversity


Regardless of race, language or religion, we are all Singaporeans and that means our love for food and the arts will forever connect us all! Stand hand-in-hand through cross-cultural performances and look forward to vibrant displays of our favourite street food, accompanied by hit songs like ‘Fried Rice Paradise’ by Dick Lee. 


Chapter 5 — We Uplift One Another
