    Default Fireworks for 8, 9 and 14 Aug

    Hi guys,

    Any idea if the firing location will be the same for the next three show as the one on the 6th? Seem like there is speculation that the one on the 8th and 14th is the same but the one on the 9th is near the padang (off the water in front of fullerton).

    Cheers,

    The one on August 9th is confirmed plus guarantee fired from Marina Bay and the Esplanade Bridge. The other two days...well....we just hope its at the same location as yesterday's?

    erm.. abit blur. When you all say Marina Bay, where exactly is it?
    Does it mean if we're standing at the esplanade, there will be fireworks on our left and right?

    Guys, I think there are just too much confusion about where is marina bay and where is marina etc ... Maybe we should come out with a standard chart/map to put down all our confusion or if not, probably we should use "the waters near the Merlion"

    So does that meant that there will only be one firing tonight? and thats the NDP fireworks? i think the timing given on the brochure from the carnival is wrong...

    2 Firings.

    First Firing: approx 8.00pm-8.10pm (Actual NDP fireworks)
    Second Firing: approx 9.00pm (low level fireworks as per brochure)

    But the online programme @ www.ndp.org.sg stated 8pm... and www.singaporefireworksfestival.com.sg stated 8pm by singapore team 6-8mins... er... i am confuse which info to trust on...

    Change of timing again?

    Well, since the website states "It will be a smaller scale display in compliments with the parade at Padang and celebrations at Heartlands."

    I assume it may be together with the NDP firworks. Meaning no need to stay until 9pm I guess.

    Today is NDP ... therefore the main theme will be NDP fireworks. I personally will be more eager to take the actual NDP fireworks rather than the supporting fireworks (should they fire from another location). If the supporting fireworks are fired near or at the same site of the actual NDP fireworks it will be a bonus.

    Actual NDP fireworks firing site is on a barge infront of the 21 Gun salute firing point which is somewhere in front Merlion. Just point your camera the direction the Merlion is spitting if you are at Fullerton.

    Yes. Except the barge might be shifted a little left, right, front or backwards.

    Here's a photo for you. See the barge (flat bed boat) there? Thats the firing point.
