    Singapore Fireworks Festival 2006 Press Release

    The Singapore Fireworks Festival 2006, in conjunction with Singapore’s 41st National Day celebration, will be held at Marina Bay over a four-day period at 2100 hours each night.

    Team Italy will debut at the festival on 5th August. Lead by choreographer Mr. Francesco Ambrico, their theme will be “Italian Forever”, showcasing a loud, dynamic and passionate display. President Nathan will grace the event on this day.

    Lead by Mr. Hery Ng, Team Singapore will present on 8th August to the theme “Colours and Festive”, centered on our unique multi-racial harmony ties and the National Day Parade festive celebrations.

    Another debutant, Team New Caledonia, lead by choreographer Mr. Charles Germain will take stage on 11th August. Their theme “Nature and Mystique” will showcase a tranquil display playing to the sights and sounds of Mother Nature.

    Team France, back at the Singapore Fireworks Festival 2006 due to popular demand, will wrap up the festival on 12th August with “France Encore”. Lead by Mr. Dominique Brezac, their act is a surprise to watch out for.

    A national event in its third year running, the Singapore Fireworks Festival 2006 will be a much grander and more spectacular affair. Over 9,000 rounds of fireworks and a greater variety of effects such as slow-fall lanterns with waterfalls and heart-shapes in dazzling shades of blue, orange and lime green are expected.

    Each individually choreographed musical fireworks display, lasting 12 to 15 minutes, will see bursts of water shells and parachutes shots that will travel up, down, across and onto the waters of Marina Bay, lighting up an area spanning 500 meters and filling the night sky with its breathtaking and stunning effects.

    An estimated 350,000 people is expected at the event which is free. Popular viewing areas include the Padang, Esplanade Park, Marina Promenade, Marina Centre, Marina South and Kallang Basin. Members of the public are advised to use public transport and not drive.

    Singapore Fireworks Festival 2006 is organised and managed by UnUsUaL Group of Companies, in conjunction with Celebrate Singapore by Singapore Tourism Board and NDP 2006 Exco Committee. For enquires, please visit www.unusual.com.sg.

    Do note that there are lots of cranes at the IR site. I am not sure if it will affect the composition if you plan to shoot at the bridge area.

    Starts at nine.

    But by 6PM you'll see many tripods at the Esplanade Bridge.

    By 7PM+ it's gonna be very packed.

    That's what I see every year.

    So if you are going, I suggest you leave home early, chop space, read book or smth (Bring lantern lamp if u have)
